Applying for Services

MacMurray College's Office of Disability Services provides access and accommodations for eligible students with documented disabilities or functional limitations who intend to pursue coursework at MacMurray College. A variety of programs and services are available which afford eligible students with disabilities the opportunity to participate fully in core academic experiences through appropriate and reasonable accommodations.

The Disability Services application constitutes an agreement to apply for these supports and should be submitted to the Office of Disability Services upon acceptance to MacMurray College. The approval process and accommodation arrangements take some time, so it is important for students to submit their applications at least six weeks prior to start of classes to prevent possible delays in service.

For more information on requirements for receiving services from Disability Services, see Qualifying Disabilities and Appropriate Documentation.

Office Hours

Disability Services is located in Henry Pfeiffer Library room 103.  Office hours are Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Due to the nature of testing accommodations, services to students and faculty may begin earlier or continue after hours and may require the office to close during the day to monitor distraction-reduced testing or to attend meetings. For this reason, emailing the Director is often the best way to schedule a meeting or phone conference.

The office is closed in the evening, so accommodated testing for night classes must be negotiated between the faculty, Disability Services, and student. Faculty may provide the accommodations or the student, with faculty approval, may arrange an alternate time with Disability Services using the test accommodations notification protocol.

The office is open and provides accommodated testing during final exams, following the College course exam schedule into the evening and on Saturday.

The office is closed during the months of June and July during which time the Office of Academic Affairs will provide summer session accommodations and schedule interpreters for meetings, as needed.
