Students with verified and documented educational disabilities must demonstrate the same progress as other students with reasonable accommodations, such as additional time. Students with disabilities who have accommodation needs are required to meet with the Disability Support Services (DSS) office, room B233-G (telephone 425-564-2498 or TTY 425-564-4110), to establish their eligibility for accommodation. The DSS office will provide each eligible student with an accommodation letter. Students who require accommodation in class must review the DSS accommodation letter with each instructor during the first week of the quarter. Students with mobility challenges who may need assistance in case of emergency situation or evacuation should register with Disability Support Services, and review those needs with the instructor as well.
