Getting Started

Getting Started with DAS

The Disability Accessibility for Students (DAS) Office at the Community College of Rhode Island is the College’s designated agent for determining eligibility, facilitating access, and coordinating accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities. Students requesting adjustments, accommodations, or services related to a disability should register with the DAS Office to determine eligibility.

Please check your CCRI email for communication from our office.  We do not correspond with personal email accounts.

To request accommodations for the first time at CCRI, follow the DAS Registration Process below:

  1. Submit a New Student Application for Accommodations
  2. Submit Supporting Documentation
    Relevant and current documentation from a qualified professional is required to establish a non-obvious disability and disability-related need for accommodations.  Review our Documentation Guidelines for assistance.
  3. Schedule an Intake Appointment 
    Once your documentation has been received, a DAS coordinator will email you to schedule an intake appointment. During your appointment, your eligibility for accommodations will be determined based on the information provided. If eligible, we will work collaboratively to develop an appropriate accommodation plan based on your self-report and the documentation you submitted.

IMPORTANT: All three steps must be completed before a student can be eligible to receive accommodations. Submitting documentation to the institution alone is not sufficient.
