disABILITY Support Services

...where the focus is on your ABILITY!

Our Mission

Our mission for disABILITY Support Services at SAC is to provide reasonable accommodations and facilitate access for on-campus and distance education students to have an equal opportunity to participate in and enjoy the benefits of higher education.

 

How to request dSS services for new, online students:

Please call (210) 486-0020 or email sac-dSSstudent@alamo.edu to schedule a phone or Zoom advising appointment.

  • Prior to your appointment, please send the following documents to: sac-dSSstudent@alamo.edu:
    1. Official documentation regarding the disability for which accommodations are being requested.   If you do not have documentation, please have your health care provider complete and sign the “Certifying Professional Questionnaire” located in the “dSS Forms” link at the bottom of this webpage.

    2. Initial Request for Disability Services form (submit via DocuSign)

    3. Copy of your class schedule

How to renew services for continuing dSS students who received accommodations within the past year:
  • Using the "dSS forms" link found at the bottom of this page, please complete the "Renewal Request for Disability Services" form.

  • Please send a copy of your class schedule to: sac-dSSstudent@alamo.edu

  • Students receive copies of their letters of accommodation via their ACES email account.

If you are taking classes at multiple Alamo Colleges, you will need to sign up for services with each of the disABILITY Support Services departments for which you are taking classes.  Medical documentation can be electronically transferred between Alamo Colleges by completing an “Authorization to Release Confidential Records” form located in the “forms” section of our webpage.  The letters of accommodation will be sent by each Alamo College you are attending.    

Accommodations are not retroactive.  Accommodations begin the day the letter is sent to professors with the exception of testing.  Professors should have at least 24 hours’ notice to prepare for making arrangements for accommodated testing. 

Dual Credit Students

For classes through high school campuses, accommodations will be made by the high school counselor. 

For online, dual credit classes taught by Alamo College faculty, accommodations can be provided via the respective Alamo College. 

Early College Students

If you are taking a San Antonio College class, please request accommodations by completing the steps in “How to request dSS services for new online students” in order to receive accommodations.
