Disability Services works with the campus community including our academic departments, faculty and staff, to provide equal access and opportunity to educational programming and services for students with disabilities.
Services are determined individually, based on federal guidelines and Quincy College policies. Our goal is to minimize the impact of the disability by providing reasonable academic accommodations for the student to meet course outcomes. Any student with a documented disability who is seeking reasonable accommodations should contact the Office of Disability Services at (617) 405-5915 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Compliance regarding services for students with disabilities or the Americans with Disabilities Act should be forwarded to Susan Bossa, Associate Vice President for Student Development/ADA Coordinator at Presidents Place, 1250 Hancock Street, Quincy, MA 02169 or by calling (617) 984-1656.
Requests for accommodations should be made in advance to allow reasonable time to prepare for implementation.
Requesting Accommodations. All students requesting accommodations must self-identify by contacting the Office of Disability Services. The student schedules an appointment with the Disability Services Coordinator who meets individually with each student to discuss appropriate accommodations and services relative to the student’s documented disability because each student’s needs are unique. At this meeting, the student is responsible for providing documentation of his/her disability.
Receiving Reasonable Accommodations. In order to be approved for accommodations, requests must be appropriate for the student’s disability and supported by the disability documentation. Once approved, the Disability Services Coordinator will generate a letter for each classroom instructor notifying the instructor of the requested accommodation. The student and instructor will sign and receive a copy of the accommodation letter. The College reserves the right to make final decisions regarding accommodations. Students with disabilities who choose not to register with the Office of Disability Services will not receive accommodations under the ADA or Section 504.

The Disability Services Offices provides accommodations, support, and advocacy to Quincy College students at both our Quincy and Plymouth campuses so that students with disabilities have equal access and opportunity to educational programming and services.
In order to arrange for accommodations, students must first provide our Disability Services Office with a copy of appropriate documentation so that we can begin the process of setting up accommodations. To help students new to this process we have posted a series of forms which guide clinicians through the process of providing us with the kind of information we need to identify appropriate accommodations.
The process to apply for disability accommodations is as follows:
- Provide Disability Services Officer a completed Student Registration Form.
- Provide the Disability Services Officer with the completed Disability Documentation Form by a clinician or health care provider.
- Attend an intake meeting with your documentation.
- Schedule an intake meeting at the Quincy Campus, call: (617) 405-5915, email: email@example.com
- Schedule an intake meeting at the Plymouth Campus, call: (617) 984-1731, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- At the intake meeting the DSO will generate a letter of accommodations to distribute to faculty.
Please complete and initial the Request for Letters Of Accommodation form and submit it to the Disability Services Officer. The form is available online and in print at the Learning Centers at the Quincy and Plymouth campuses.
Your Letters of Accommodation will be prepared and you can sign them with the DSO during the initial meeting. Please make arrangements to pick them up from the Learning Centers at the Quincy and Plymouth campuses.
If you have been approved for time extensions for tests and quizzes you should make arrangements for this accommodation at the campus Learning Centers at the Quincy and Plymouth campuses.
