Disability Services Center (DSC)

Our services are designed to meet the unique educational needs of currently enrolled students with documented permanent/ temporary disabilities or disabling medical conditions.  

The Disability Services Center (DSC) is dedicated to the principle that equal opportunity be afforded each student to realize his/her fullest potential. The goal is to assist students with disabilities to function as independently as possible, and to ensure a comprehensively accessible college experience where individuals with disabilities have the same access to programs, opportunities and activities as all other students at the college.  

When you were in high school:

  • Did you have an IEP or a 504 plan?
  • Did you use resource room to support your school work?
  • Did you have testing accommodations?

From day to day:

  • Do you have a disabling medical condition?
  • Do you have JRA, IBS, TBI or other?
  • Do you have physical or mental health issues that cause you to miss out on activities, including school? 

DSC offers its services to all students in face-to-face, hybrid, online courses and distance education programs. Please contact Malka Edelman, Director, at malka.edelman@farmingdale.edu to discuss your reasonable accommodations.

Documentation about your disability will need to be provided.
