Disability Services

Disability Services is the support service for students with disabilities at Camden County College. Established in 1988, Disability Services has assisted hundreds of students with services, including course advisement, academic counseling and program accommodations. Adaptive technology is available in the Disability Services office for students needing additional assistance in their classes. The Disability Services Office recommends enrolling in a College Success freshman orientation class over the summer. In addition, Disability Services Office invites students to participate in a summer-orientation program.

Disability Services is a practical, down-to-earth program that aims to help students become self-sufficient advocates for their own needs and rights. As a support service, it is a self-help program that emphasizes student rights and responsibilities, and at the same time safeguards the academic integrity and standards of college courses and programs.
