Student Access Services

In keeping with Ringling College’s commitment to diversity and conformity to legal mandates, the College provides accommodations to students with disabilities for full access to its curricula and programs in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, amended (ADA) and Section 504 of the 1973 Civil Rights Act.

Accommodations are arranged through Student Access Services (SAS) based on information from diagnosing and treating professionals and from students’ self-reports. Documentation from diagnostic testing and other evaluations is required. Recent Individualized Education Programs are often part of this information but additional documents may be needed. Based on the documentation, SAS will determine accommodations on a case-by-case basis.

Students who have diagnosed cognitive, psychiatric, medical or other conditions that may limit their access to instruction, facilities or activities should contact SAS after acceptance at Having submitted appropriate documentation, they will then work with SAS personnel to determine the right combination of accommodations to support their equal opportunity.
