The office of Disability Support Services for Students (DSS), located in the Learning Center, provides support services for students with disabilities on the Fredonia campus. The DSS office coordinates those services essential for providing the student with a disability the opportunity to be successful at Fredonia. All services are available on a case-by-case, course-by-course and semester-by-semester basis.
The DSS office works to ensure that "...no otherwise qualified individual with a disability shall, solely by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from participating in any of ... the activities, courses, programs or benefits" of the college. These students' rights are protected by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as well as Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
