Student Disability Services

The Student Disability Services office strives to ensure that qualified students with disabilities are provided equal access to all SMC programs and activities.  We achieve this by reducing obstacles and environmental barriers for students that impact learning by providing individual accommodations, assistive technology, and programming to students.  The Student Disability Services office supports faculty in the classroom and our colleagues across the college, striving for universal design and full inclusion to help create an informed college community that is equipped and able to address disability-related issues.

By providing direction, offering resources, and connecting students with faculty, housing, student life staff, and other campus partners, the Student Disability Services office encourages and supports self-advocacy among students being served. Being student-centered in nature, SDS strives to provide a pathway for academic success and a goal of developing confident and independent student learners. 

If you have a disability or medical condition and need support, refer to the Accommodations Tab below for more information about how to start the request accommodations process.
