Welcome to Connors State College ADA academic accommodations page.  Connors State College believes providing a learning climate that accommodates all students is a vital educational role.  Academic accommodations are meant to provide equal access and equal opportunities. Having a disability protects a person from discrimination but does not establish a need for accommodations. Academic accommodations are based on need, not desire.

At Connors State, we want to provide an atmosphere of understanding and awareness in a welcoming, friendly environment by providing or arranging reasonable accommodations and services to provide assistance to foster independence and academic progress.  Students at Connors State College have the legal right to receive academic accommodations (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1990 (PL 93-112) and the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended (ADAAA) 2008 (PL 110-325)that have self identified and provided appropriate documentation and has been approved for academic accommodations by the ADA Coordinator. Please do not hesitate to email me at kdp@connorsstate.edu for more information.
