Applying for Services
To register with OAS, you will need to have an intake interview with Melanie Bukovsky, Disability Specialist. Call the Middletown office at (845) 341-4077 to set up an appointment. You may also call Jennifer Clayton, our Newburgh Disability Specialist at (845) 341-9034.
At the time of the intake interview, students must present appropriate medical or psychological documentation for the stated disability. Documentation may also include suggestions for compensatory strategies, adaptive devices, or other support services that would benefit the student. Documentation will remain confidential and will be maintained by OAS. This information will be considered confidential and is to be shared within the institution on a need-to-know basis only. Disability records may be destroyed five years after the student s last enrollment.
Documentation must be relevant and must establish a clear link between the disability and the need for specific accommodations, like calculator use, extended time for tests, etc. For students with a suspected learning disability, referrals can be made for off-campus diagnostic testing and evaluation at the student's cost.
If you need a more accessible version of the document linked to above, please contact Melanie Bukovsky 341-4077.
