Accessibility & Disability

The accessibility program is dedicated to promoting full participation and benefits for students with disabilities in all activities and programs in accordance with the American with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  This program is available for all qualifying students with a disability who need classroom, testing, or housing accommodations.  Accommodations are available for all courses whether they be on campus, online, or through outreach centers. 

Please note that persons seeking accommodations for placement testing should contact the Accessibility Specialist in the Office of Wellbeing & Accessibility. However, persons seeking accommodations for standardized tests, such as the ACT, Pearson View, etc., must apply for accommodations through the testing company.

The Accessibility Specialist will work with each student to determine their qualifications for services based on the documentation provided.

To apply for accommodations:

  • Call 307-382-1652  or stop by the Office of Wellbeing & Accessibility, Room 2011 to make an appointment.
  • Bring documentation of the disability for which you are seeking accommodation to your appointment.  This may be an IEP, 504 plan, or a diagnosis from a health care provider.
