STUDENT HANDBOOK
135
Lake Region State College defines a disability as a professionally verified condition which
substantially limits a major life activity (Section 504, ADA). This includes, but may not
be limited to cognitive disabilities, motor disabilities, psychiatric disabilities, speech
impairments, hearing impairments, and visual impairments.
To obtain disability services, a student must identify himself/herself to the Office of
Disability Support Services located in the TRiO/PowerSkills office (701-662-1642), and
provide current professional documentation of his/her specific disability. The Disability
Support Services Coordinator determines the appropriate accommodations for each
individual student and issues a notice to them with the specified accommodations. The
student, who is eligible for disability accommodations, has the responsibility to meet with
his/her instructors and provide them with the notice. Students utilizing support services
must observe the same college policies and academic regulations required of all students.
