Disability Support Services

Disability Support Services staff

Welcome to St. Charles Community College and to the Disability Support Services (DSS) Office. Tours of the SCC campus can be arranged by contacting Enrollment Services at 636-922-8226. You can explore the services we provide on these pages or find out more information by calling 636-922-8627.

Applying for Services

To apply for services you should schedule an appointment with the DSS Manager. The process includes a review of your documentation and an interview with the manager. Accommodations and disability status are approved on a case-by-case basis. Accommodations are arranged to ensure access to all programs/courses at SCC.

New students should apply to the college online and complete their assessment test or submit ACT scores before meeting with the DSS Manager. Each section of the assessment test is untimed and is taken on a computer. An online calculator is allowed for the math section. For more information, contact the Assessment Center. If accommodations are approved for the assessment tests, they will be provided through DSS and must be scheduled ahead of time.

Providing Access

The DSS office is now a one-stop-shop. You can have your accommodations approved at the same time that you are registering for classes. You should be able to have all of your advising needs met in DSS, unless you are an international student. Accommodations will be approved once you are enrolled in your semester classes.

SCC coordinates support services which provide equal access to the college. SCC is committed to providing accessibility to its programs/activities and reasonable accommodations for persons defined as disabled under the Americans With Disabilities Act As Amended and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504. These acts protect qualified students with disabilities from discrimination.

DSS advocates for an accessible academic/physical environment and works collaboratively with staff, administrators and faculty. St. Charles Community College welcomes and supports a diverse student body and is responsible for ensuring accessibility.
