Program Eligibility

The Access & Ability Center seeks to support the academic success of
COS students through providing accommodations for a variety of disabilities including:


    • students with mobility and vision impairments
    • students with hearing and speech difficulties    
    • students with learning disabilities
    • students who have acquired brain injuries
    • students with intellectual disabilities 
    • students with mental health conditions
    • students with other medical conditions which may create barriers to education



1 - Intake Application
2 - Disability Verification
  • Bring in documentation of a disability or qualifying condition. Have a licensed or certified professional with knowledge of your disability/condition complete the Disability Verification form, and turn it in or fax it to our office at (559) 730 - 3803. If you have an IEP or 504 plan from high school, or a copy of your medical records, you can turn this in as verification and you will not need to complete this form.
  • If no such documentation exists or can be found, a student may join our program if found eligible for services through a learning assessment​.
 3 - Intake Appointment
  • After you turn in all of your documentation, your file will be verified for eligibility. Within 1 to 2 weeks, if you are found to be eligible for our services, we will contact you at the number you provided us on the AAC Intake Form to schedule an initial counseling appointment. 
*NOTE:  In order to receive services, a student must have documentation from a licensed or certified professional providing verification of disability or other qualifying health condition. Verification can also be in the form of an IEP or 504 Plan. If documentation does not exist, students can be assessed for a learning disability with our learning specialists. In these cases, students should submit the AAC Intake Form, and should tell our office that they are interested in LD Testing.
If you have further questions about our application process, call our office at (559) 730 - 3805 or email us at
