Disability Services

Disability Services The Disability Services Office (DSO) provides reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities to ensure access to all programs, facilities, and activities of the College based on Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), and their amendments. Accommodations are made on an individual, case-by-case basis, after an interactive process and submission of documentation to the Disability Services Coordinator. Incoming students with a disability are encouraged to submit documentation immediately upon acceptance into the College so that accommodations can be determined before the start of the term in which they enroll. For more information, please call 717.569.7071 ext. 5383 or email DSO@lbc.edu.
