Thank you for your interest in the Office for Students with Disabilities at the College of Lake County. The choice to pursue your education is rewarding, but it is not without its share of challenges, only some of which may be disability related. In college, it is expected that students work hard, study, and sacrifice. Though our office is primarily responsible for the provision of academic accommodations, the degree or certificate you receive will not be due to those things provided to you, but because you earned it through your own efforts. Our main purpose is to ensure that each student has access, but the success is up to you.

Our office is here to support your needs relative to your disability. The services provided through this office are in accordance with section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act and its amendments. Most importantly, the use of our services and support are at your discretion. If you take the first step, our office can follow.

Contacting us is an easy process. We are located on the first floor of the B-Court near the Lancer Zone at the Grayslake Campus, room B171. You may also reach us by phone, email, or confidential fax, all of which are below. When you meet with me or a representative of our office, give us the opportunity to understand the nature and extent of your disability in the college environment. Just as no two students are alike, your needs will be addressed individually and confidentially.

You will find this office, and each and every member of the team, to be open, receptive, and concerned for you as an individual. We pride ourselves on maintaining an interactive approach, a positive atmosphere, and equitable treatment for those we serve.

Whether you have a few questions prior to registering, or an issue just prior to graduating, our office is open to consult with you on your disability related concerns. I believe you will find the department extremely approachable.

We wish you the very best in your academic endeavor and would be delighted to be part of it. Please do not hesitate to let us know how we may be of service.
