Accessibility and Accommodations
Any individual with a disability or disabling condition is entitled to reasonable and appropriate accommodations, auxiliary aids, and services that provide equal educational opportunities or access to the workplace with reasonable accommodations.
The Academic Success Center’s Disability & Accessibility Services (DAS) is the College’s designated office for determining eligibility and facilitating student access in academic settings. Non-academic (i.e. housing, dining, transportation, etc.) accommodation requests are managed by the Office of Non-discrimination Initiatives (ONDI) through this same application process.
Employees that need assistance in requesting reasonable accommodations should work with Human Resources.
Community members that are not students or employees should contact the Office of Non-Discrimination Initiatives at (413) 748-3248 for assistance in requesting accommodations or reporting accessibility concerns.
Have a concern? Let us know!
Alert the College to accessibility or accommodation concerns relative to any physical or programmatic barrier at the College.
