How to Register

While students can request accommodations at any time, it is best to contact AccessAbility Center/Student Disability Services (AAC/SDS) as early as possible as some accommodations and services take time to implement. AAC/SDS counselors are available to meet with students as a part of the college decision process. Once students are admitted to the City College of New York, they can begin the process of requesting accommodations.  The following are steps in how a student can register with the AAC/SDS:

  1. Schedule an appointment with an AAC counselor by calling AAC at (212) 650-5913, or by emailing, or visiting the Office: North Academic Center, 1/218, 160 Convent Avenue, New York, NY 10031.

  2. Obtain disability documentation and bring it to your appointment.  When meeting with your provider, please bring a copy of the Request for Disability Documentation Provider Form, and return the completed form to AAC/SDS Office.  Or, if you would like a staff member to contact your provider, you will need to complete an Authorization for Release of Information form.

  3. If you would like an AAC/SDS counselor to discuss your education records with your parents, or a caregiver, or a family member, complete the CUNY FERPA form and bring it to your intake session.

  4. Complete an Intake Form.

  5. Meet with an AAC counselor who will assist you in determining appropriate accommodations and services

If you are not sure whether you qualify for services or if you do not have documentation, please schedule an appointment with an AAC counselor for an informational session.
