Requesting Accommodations

Lone Star College is committed to ensuring students with disabilities have equal access to LSC programs, services, and activities. It is important for LSC students to know how to request accommodations and who to talk to.  See the information below for new and returning students.

Commonly Requested College Accommodations

New Students: Getting Started

1. Self-Identify.
Contact the LSC Disability Services Office where you are taking classes and self-identify as a student with a disability.  Visit Campus Disability Services Offices.

2. Request accommodations online through VDAC.
The LSC Virtual Disability Assistance Center (VDAC) is the Lone Star College cloud-based software hosting a secure location that will process and hold disability services requests and records for students with disabilities at all LSC campuses.  

3. Provide documentation.
Students are responsible for providing documentation of disability. Because K-12 and Higher Education laws differ, it is important to note that K-12 documentation may not fully satisfy LSC documentation requirements. To download Medical Verification Form or to review Document Guidance or for other Disability Services, see Additional Resources.

4. Actively engage.
You matter! LSC expects students to actively participate in all discussions and decision-making about your accommodations. Stay engaged!

Returning Students: A New Semester

Lone Star College Policy states that students must identify themselves each semester as individuals requesting accommodation based on a qualifying disability.

This is because the type of class (e.g., online, lecture) and the subject (e.g., Math, Art) are just a few items considered when developing accommodations.

Once accommodation eligibilities are approved, LSC students log in to the Virtual Disability Assistance Center (VDAC) to select which eligibilities they will apply to each class.

Log in to VDAC and renew accommodation requests today.
