Office of Disability Services

The Office of Disability Services assists students in the spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and most recently, the ADA Amendments Act of 2008. Cochise College Disability Services supports students in discovering and developing their full potential by providing support services to students who may need reasonable accommodation or adjustment in order to achieve academic success.

To be eligible to receive an accommodation from Disability Services, a student must be enrolled at Cochise College and have a mental or physical impairment that substantially limits a major life activity. The disability must be verified by appropriate documentation, which means a professional in the area of the disability must document the nature and severity of the disability. Professionals may include medical doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and learning specialists. An appointment must then be made with the Director of Disability Services for the student to complete the intake process necessary to request services and accommodations. Students who need accommodations for placement testing should contact the Office of Disability Services prior to testing. In addition, community members who attend functions at Cochise College campuses and centers who have a qualifying disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act may also schedule an intake appointment to discuss accommodations.

Additional information is available at (800) 966-7943 or or by calling the Office of Disability Services at (520) 515-5337 or completing the Request for Accommodations Form which is located on the department webpage.
