Office of Accessibility Services
Ben-Ami Freier, Director
Queensborough Community College takes great pride in the success of all of its students and is committed to providing opportunity and access to individuals with disabilities in all programs offered by the college. The philosophy and mission of the Office of Accessibility Services (OAS) is “to facilitate the academic success of students with disabilities through the provision of appropriate educational supports and settings while nurturing personal development.”
This commitment is consistent with the guidelines in the provision of “reasonable accommodation” set forth by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, including changes made by the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (P.L. 110-325), which became effective on January 1, 2009.
Students are required to register with OAS before accommodations requests will be considered. Students who know or suspect they may have a disability that affects their ability to succeed in college should contact the OAS office to learn more about their services.
