  • MISSION

    Under Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, LaGuardia Community College has an implicit responsibility to ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to its programs and services, and that the rights of students with disabilities are not denied. The Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) provides advocacy to ensure access to all college programs and facilitates the transition to college life for students with disabilities. All students are required to register with supporting documentation. Appropriate accommodations and services are determined and include: 

    • academic, career and personal counseling
    • priority registration
    • academic advisement
    • support services such as assistive technology and tutors; proctoring exams for students.

    How to Obtain Accommodations:


    Students must initiate a request for accommodations by contacting the OSD office. The student must provide documentation of the disability. Accommodations may be provided on an interim basis while the student is obtaining documentation, at the Counselor’s discretion. If you have a documented disability and want to request accommodations, please:

    1. Contact the Office for Students with Disabilities for more information.
    2. Make an appointment with the Counselor to determine what accommodations are right for you. Documentation of the disability will be needed at this time.
    3. Any difficulty in receiving accommodations are to be reported immediately to the Office for Students with Disabilities.

    Online students: YES, you can receive accommodations!


    Online students with documented disabilities may be eligible for extra time on tests and books in alternate formats.
