Office of Access & Disability Resources

The Office of Access & Disability Resources provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities. We utilize the student’s lived experience and relevant legislation (The Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504, etc.) to guide our processes. Our team is here to guide students through their academic journey from enrollment to graduation.

We look forward to connecting with you!

How to Connect with Access and Disability Services

Getting connected with our office is a relatively quick and easy process. We want to meet with you as soon as possible to discuss any disability-related concerns and supports we can explore on your behalf. 

Self Identify using our Self-Disclosure of Disability Form

This not only gives us some preliminary information about you, but it also will allow us to move forward with reasonable accommodations related to a disability.  After the Self-Disclosure of Disability Form is submitted, you should expect to receive an email from accommodations@bc3.edu in 3 business day(s). The email will provide a link to schedule a meeting with the Director of Student Access & Success.

Set up an initial meeting with Jenn Loue, the Director of Student Access & Success, to discuss barriers.

IEPs are documents used ONLY in the K-12 environment to support a student’s learning needs. Upon graduation from high school, IEPs are no longer legally binding documents. IEPs can be used as a historical reference/documentation that a student has utilized accommodations in the past. Also, if a student with an IEP is taking a college course while in high school (dually enrolled) certain accommodations may not apply to that college course. Below is a link we recommend both students and parents review to help understand this change.

If you have a disability or temporary disabling condition that will prevent you from performing well under standard test conditions, please contact the Access and Disability Resources Department for information on testing accommodations.

Contact Us

Documentation may be necessary to determine your eligibility for requested accommodations. We welcome any documentation a student can provide that will aid in determining eligibility. What is key to determining eligibility and the possible need for documentation, is the conversation had with our office regarding the academic barriers that exist related to identified disability. If documentation is needed, we will assist in exploring how and where a student can obtain the necessary documentation.

Please do not delay connecting with us if you do not have documentation.

Common sources of documentation are healthcare providers, psychologists, diagnosticians, and/or information from a previous school. Documentation may include assessments, reports, and/or letters from qualified evaluators, professionals, and institutions, providing current and/or past accommodations and any recommended accommodations.

Please do not delay connecting with us if you do not have documentation.

Yes! It is strongly recommended that you continue to work with a Success Coach throughout your time at BC3. Explore Success Coaching at BC3.

Students currently connected with the ADR office should fill out the Extended Testing Time Request form at least 48 hours prior to the test. After the form is submitted, the student will receive an email from the ADR office to confirm the submission of the form and further information.
