New And Prospective Students

New Student Appointment Information

  1. Please send an email to [email protected] and indicate on which campus you usually take courses, or plan to take courses, and then the appropriate DSS Coordinator will get in contact with you to set up an intake meeting which may be held virtually via zoom or on-campus at Knight or Flanagan during office hours.
  2. You will need to provide current, valid supporting documentation for your accommodation request. We ask that you send us this documentation via email.
  3. During this meeting, accommodations will be discussed based on your qualifying disability.  

Enrolling at CCRI and Identifying with DSS

Please note that Accuplacer exams are being scheduled by our Advising & Counseling office and being administered remotely and more information about this is available here.   

If you would like to set up a meeting with a DSS Coordinator to discuss potential accommodations for the Accuplacer, please send an email to [email protected] or text 401.405.3333 and someone will assist you with this process.

For RI Promise / Reduced Course Load Accommodations please follow the steps above for “New and Prospective” student appointment information.

Below is the typical protocol for registering with DSS and receiving accommodations for courses when we get back to campus.

Before students with disabilities can request accommodations from the Disability Services Office they need to have their Student Identification Number. The student ID number is given to all students once they apply to the college. Here is the list of steps to enroll:

  1. Complete the application either on-line or by using a paper form that can be mailed or dropped off in person.
  2. Once the acceptance package has been received, and you think that you may qualify for accommodations for the ACCUPLACER, please contact [email protected] and indicate which campus you plan to take your courses on during the upcoming semester to set up a meeting with a DSS coordinator. You will need to provide documentation of your disability.
  3. After the ACCUPLACER test is complete, make an appointment for a new student registration session with an academic advisor (this is not the same person as the Disability Services Coordinator) to discuss classes and registration.
  4. If you have not already done so, schedule an appointment with the Disability Services for Students office to complete intake. You will need to provide current documentation that pertains to your disability.
