Arranging Accommodations for For-Credit DCE Courses and Great Plains IDEA
Evening College and Intersession Courses
Evening College refers to a set of courses located on or near the K-State campus that are offered for-credit. Intersession courses are offered in between regular semesters (hence inter-session) in May, August, and December. Students with disabilities enrolled in Evening College or Intersession courses receive accommodations directly through the office. Students should request and pick up accommodation letters at the DSS office in 202 Holton Hall.
Distance (Online) Courses
Online courses through DCE take place online and students do not see their class or instructor in person. Students may be distant or local (Manhattan residents). Regardless of physical location, if a student enrolls in a distance course he or she should contact Disability Support Services at firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone (785)532-6441.
Contacting DSS upon enrollment in the course means that accommodations can be arranged in a timely manner. Depending on the nature of the disability and the technology used in the course, course materials may require modification.
Distant students should follow this procedure:
- A specialist will review your documentation soon after it is received. You will be notified if your documentation meets requirements or if we need more information prior to providing academic accommodations.
- See Accommodation Letters for more information.
K-State instructors are excellent and willing to work with students with disabilities. However, in the event that a student encounters difficulty arranging accommodations, do not hesitate to contact DSS.
Great Plains and AG* IDEA Courses
If you are a Great Plains or AG* IDEA student and K-State is your home institution
you can register for accommodations through DSS. Simply follow the guidelines for
Online Students. When you take a course at another institution, DSS will contact that
institution and make arrangements to transfer your accommodations. We want to make
this a simple process for you and our Adaptive Technology Specialist can answer any
questions you may have.
