Office of Disability Services

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 .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

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 delivers the letter to each instructor. 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.
