Online Student ADA
Online Students and ADA Accommodations
Students enrolled in all online classes may utilize the same or comparable support services that are afforded to all HCC students. Students only enrolled in online classes may request their accommodation in the same manner as students taking classes on the college’s premises. Students can schedule the required appointments with any of the ability services offices. Although we recommend face-to-face appointments, these appointments may be done via telephone, video conference, or in another format that suits both the ability services office and the student. Once the student receives the accommodation letter, the student must still sign the letter and then present it to the online instructor for the courses in which the student desires accommodation – normally via e-mail. students are urged to follow-up with the instructor regarding the accommodation(s) and determine whether technical support will be needed to implement the accommodation(s). If the student or instructor needs assistance with this process, they may contact the ability services office that provided the accommodation letter.
