Disability Services facilitates equal access for students with disabilities by coordinating reasonable accommodations and support services, cultivating a campus culture that is sensitive and responsive to the needs of students.
Accommodations are adjustments to policies, practices, and procedures that “level the playing field” for students with disabilities and provide equal access to Columbia’s programs and activities. Examples include the administration of exams, services such as note-taking, sign language interpreters, or assistive technology, and coordination of accessible housing needs. Accommodation plans and services are specific to the disability-related needs of each student and are determined according to documented needs and the student’s program requirements.
Registration includes submission of both the Registration Form and disability documentation. The application and disability documentation guidelines are available online and at the Disability Services office. Students are encouraged to register within the first two weeks of the semester to ensure that reasonable accommodations can be made for that term. Please note that students are not eligible to receive accommodations until the registration process is complete.
Disability Services Liaisons are designated faculty or staff from each school, academic program, or campus service who work with Disability Services to coordinate accommodations for students with disabilities. The GSAS liaison, Kei Phillip, may be reached at kap2156 [at] columbia.edu or (212) 854-7892.
