​​Santa Monica College is committed to the belief that students with disabilities should have equal opportunity to participate in all the academic and extracurricular activities of the college.

Each year, over 1000 students with disabilities identify themselves to Disabled Students Services and request reasonable academic adjustments, as mandated by state and federal law. Others go directly to instructors and staff with requests for accommodations which may or may not be legitimate. We hope this guide will help you to identify and accommodate legitimate student requests for academic adjustment.
