Disability Services

Blinn College is dedicated to providing the least restrictive learning environment for all students. Therefore, support services for students with disabilities are provided on an individual basis, upon request.

The Office of Disability Services (ODS) serves students requiring special support services due to:

  • Visual/Hearing Impairment
  • Learning Disability
  • Mental/Psychological Disorders
  • Neurological Disorder
  • Brain Injury
  • Chronic Illness
  • Physical and Orthopedic Impairments
  • Other Disabilities

Accommodations are provided based upon the diagnosis and the student’s past accommodation history.  Examples of services include, but are not limited to:

  • Extended time for testing
  • Testing in a secluded or distraction-free environment
  • Test readers or scribes
  • Assistance with obtaining digital textbooks
  • Assistance with note taking
  • Referral to other community resources (TRC, MHMR, private practitioners)
  • Individual Counseling on disability related issues

Documentation of a Disability

Prior to receiving accommodations, appropriate supporting documentation must be received and approved.

Review of documentation can take up to four weeks; we recommend sending documentation as soon as possible. Be sure to include complete contact information (student and parent names; home, work and cell telephone numbers and/or home mailing address; BUC Blinn e-mail address and your campus of choice, and if assigned, the student’s Blinn I.D. number) when submitting documentation. Documentation can be mailed, scanned as an e-mail attachment or faxed to your chosen campus (Brenham, Bryan, Schulenburg, Sealy).

Once your documentation has been reviewed and accepted, ODS will send intake paperwork and instructions to your BUC Blinn email account. You will be contacted if further documentation is needed. No intake appointment will be made until documentation has been received and approved.

What is "appropriate supporting documentation?"

"Appropriate supporting documentation" would be testing results from your high school diagnostician or licensed psychologist indicating the type of test(s) given, the test scores, and the interpretation of the test scores; and/or a letter on professional letterhead from your medical doctor, physical/speech/occupational therapist, audiologist, ophthalmologist, or other licensed person appropriate to make the diagnosis indicating the diagnosis or type of disability.

Documentation must show current functioning of the student. Appropriate diagnostic  testing cannot be older than 5 years; some documentation may be required to be as recent as within the last month, depending on the diagnosis.
