Student Accessibility Services

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) provides support and accommodations for students with disabilities attending classes both on campus and online. We will work with you one-on-one to accommodate your academic and personal needs and help you get the most out of your time at Shoreline.

Contact us today or choose from the options below to learn more and get started.

Reasonable accommodations and modifications can be valuable tools for success in school. SAS can assist by providing, for example, the following accommodations:

  • extra testing time and quiet rooms to help focus on exams
  • audio and video captioning and alternative text formats
  • assistance with notetaking in the classroom
  • sign language interpreters
  • assistance with campus access
  • housing accommodations
  • early registration for classes
  • and more!

Students with apparent and non-apparent disabilities are eligible for services. Verification of diagnosis that is three years old or less is required. Students must be currently enrolled at Shoreline Community College to apply for SAS assistance.

Examples of disabilities SAS has assisted with include:

  • learning disabilities
  • vision and hearing disabilities
  • psychiatric disabilities
  • temporary physical disabilities (i.e. a broken leg)

Eligibility is evaluated both by Shoreline’s Policy 5114 and ultimately by SAS’s Program Specialist, who approves students’ verification of disability documentation.
