Accommodations & Services
Lone Star College provides academic adjustments and auxiliary aids and services (also referred to as accommodations or ADA accommodations) to eligible students with disabilities. Accommodations ensure that each student has an equal opportunity to participate in the college’s programs, and are reviewed and implemented each semester, based on several factors such as documentation of disability, faculty input, student conversations, and class schedules.
Reasonable accommodations are college-approved modifications or adjustments that enable a qualified student with a disability to fully participate in a college course, program, facility, activity or service. These accommodations provide assurance that a qualified individual with a disability has rights and privileges which are equal to students without disabilities. Reasonable accommodations include:
To receive accommodations, Lone Star College first has to certify the qualifying disability before determining reasonable accommodations.
- Review the Policy and Procedures on Students with Disability Rights.
- Download and complete the Disability Verification Form and Student Information & Accommodation Request Form.
- Submit application and forms to your campus Disability Service Office (email is okay); see contacts listed on this page. A Disability Service Provider will review your application and documents and follow up with you.
If you have any questions or need help with this process, please contact your campus Disability Service Office.
Appeals & Reconsiderations
If you have previously requested accommodations and were denied, or are in need of revisions to current accommodations, visit ADA Appeals and Reconsiderations for more information.
Students with accommodations must apply for renewal each semester as needed.
To renew, first download and complete the Student Request for Continued Services form.
Submit forms to your campus Disability Service Office (contacts listed on this page). Please note that requesting renewal does not automatically grant accommodations. The DS Provider will review the request, determine eligibility, and follow up to discuss your request. Eligible students will receive an Accommodation Letter from your DS Provider through your Lone Star College e-mail address (i.e., name@myLonestar.edu). For more information, please see LSC’s Board Policy on Students with Disability Rights (section VI.D.11). For more information on procedures, see Students with Disability Rights Procedures.
