Student Disability Services (SDS) offers support services and academic accommodations for Daytona State students with documented disabilities. We comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, as amended.
According to these federal laws, students with disabilities "must have a substantial impairment to a major life function in order to receive accommodations." The impairment must be permanent in nature, or for an indeterminate duration. Temporary impairments are not disabilities under the law. SDS determines the types of support services and academic accommodations or adjustments for which a student is eligible to receive. SDS makes determinations based solely on documentation from licensed medical and or mental health professionals, which clearly delineate the limitations resulting from a person's disability.
Our mission is to ensure student success by advocating for students with disabilities while providing them with auxiliary aides, assistive technology, and other reasonable accommodations to participate in the programs, services, and activities of the College. If you have a disability and need accommodations, we encourage you to register with SDS and request the accommodations that you need. Accordingly, Daytona State College provides an environment that fosters independence and autonomy for students with disabilities. Registering with SDS will ensure that you have every opportunity to fully participate in the college experience.
