Returning Students

Notify your Access Specialist that you have registered for the semester as soon as possible. Even if you have stopped out for a semester or two, we will still have your information on file. Instructor Notification will be automatically routed to your my.stlcc.edu address. Should you find that you have additional needs for new classes, schedule an appointment with your Specialist right away.

High School Students

Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit/Early College can be a great option for students who have disabilities. Increased autonomy, a change of environment, and flexibility are a few of the reasons students may seek to start their college career early.

Visiting Students

Students who are visiting our campus from another college/university should provide a copy of their approved accommodations from their home institution and complete an application for services. Additional documentation or paperwork is generally not required, but a meeting to review STLCC processes is recommended.

Continuing Education/Workforce Solutions Group

The Access Office works with students who are life-long learners in our continuing education programs. If there are classes, programs, trips of interest and you need accommodations to participate, please contact the office most convenient for you and we will discuss our services. Please note that it may take a little time to get things set up for you, so please give us as much advance notice as possible!

Temporary Disability / Injuries

The Access Office provides support to students who have temporarily disabling conditions such as broken bones, hospitalizations, or surgeries. We understand that temporary disabilities are most often unplanned, so we will work with you to put services in place as soon as possible. Contact our office right away to begin the process. Medical documentation may be required to support your needs. Possible accommodations include: Alternate seating, allow to stand, move about, elevate extremities, Note-takers, digital recorders, more time for testing.


A person with a "normal" pregnancy isn't considered to be a "person with a disability" as defined by disability law (Section 504 or ADA). If your pregnancy involves some medical complications that impact one or more of your major life functions, you might be considered "temporarily disabled," and thus eligible to register with the Access Office. The office would want documentation from your doctor about the medical complications in order to determine how best to serve you. The Access Office has procedures in place for students with temporary disabilities. Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on an individual's circumstances. Pregnant or parenting students should refer to STLCC's Title IX policy.
