What are Accommodations?
Accommodations are services such as: note taking, extended time, technology, specialized equipment, and academic counseling, tailored to your special needs.
If you have a documented Learning, Physical, or Psychological Disability, you may be eligible for accommodations and should contact the Office of Student Accommodations [OSA] by email OSA@reynolds.edu or call 804.523.5628 or 804.523.5290, to schedule an appointment for any of our campuses.
It is your responsibility to schedule an appointment with the Office of Student Accommodations if you will require accommodations at Reynolds, email, fax or drop off documentation. If you need assistance requesting copies of your documentation from outside agencies, our office can assist in this process.
Please submit your documentation in order to schedule and intake appointment, this appointment is used to gather information, discuss accommodations, and set up a plan for accommodating your special needs. Once the intake appointment has been completed and you are registered for classes a Letter of Accommodation will be completed by a Disability Specialist at Reynolds and emailed to you as classes start.
It is your responsibility to provide Letters of Accommodation to each instructor and to discuss your request for accommodations. You are not required to disclose detailed information regarding your disability unless you choose to do so. You are encouraged to be your own advocate, but we are here to help and guide you in this process.
Reynolds Policy 1-15 provides our students with the framework for requesting service.
New students should contact the OSA three weeks prior to the start of their first semester to begin the accommodation process and ensure a timely delivery of the service they are requesting for that academic semester. Accommodations require planning and preparation; students need to become familiar with the process and the expectations the college academic setting will be making of them. College expectations will be different from the high school’s expectations.
Returning students, who received accommodations in a previous semester, must email or call, OSA@reynolds.edu or call 804.523.5628 or 804.523.5290, to request their ANF’s are prepared and emailed to their school email to be forwarded to their faculty.
Accommodations are provided each semester only at the request of the student prior to the start of that semester.
