Services for Students with Disabilities

SUNYIT welcomes students with disabilities. A student with a disability should discuss individual needs with the Disability Services Counselor at any time to understand options for academic accommodations or disability services at SUNYIT. An appointment with the Disability Services Counselor, (315-792-7170) is needed for the consideration, planning, and provision of the necessary support services.

The Disability Services Counselor assists with the following services: orientation for new and transfer students, regular counseling, individualized advisement and registration, assistive technology training and the determination of academic accommodations based on a student’s documented disability.

The Disability Services Counselor serves as a liaison with the New York State Vocational Rehabilitation Service, the New York State Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired, and other agencies serving or sponsoring the student.
