  • Admissions Requirements

    Students with disabilities must meet the same admission standards as students without disabilities. You must have a NYS Regents diploma, local diploma or a high-school equivalency diploma in order to enter college.

  • Accommodated Placement Testing

    If a student has a physical or mental impairment that requires testing accommodations, she/he must schedule an intake interview with the campus counselor for students with disabilities. The student must provide documentation that indicates the need for accommodations or modifications. During the interview, the counselor determines what accommodations, if any, are appropriate. Only those students who have been interviewed by the counselor for students with disabilities will be permitted to take an accommodated test. Dates and times for accommodated tests vary from campus to campus. For additional information, please contact the Student Access Center office at the campus you plan to attend.

  • Voter Registration

    The Student Access Center is a National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) voter registration site. Voter registration information, assistance and forms are available at each of the Student Access Center campus offices.
