ACCESS (Disability Services)
OCC buildings are closed to students and visitors. Contact your campus ACCESS Office via telephone (see phone numbers at the bottom of the page) or email the Auburn Hills Access office, Highland Lakes Access Office, Orchard Ridge Access Office, Royal Oak Access Office or the Southfield Access Office for disability services or questions related to disability accommodations or supports. Students interested in exploring text-to-speech for online class materials may want to try Natural Reader and those who are blind or low-vision interested in exploring screen-reading software may want to try NVDA.
The Accessibility Compliance Center & Education Support Services (ACCESS) program is designed to provide accommodations and services to students with a documented disability diagnosed by a qualified, licensed professional as required by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (PL 93-112).
Students with disabilities are supported through ACCESS with accommodations and services including, but not limited to: sign language interpreters, alternative testing arrangements, specialized equipment and tutoring.
To arrange for an accommodations review, a student must make an appointment with the
ACCESS office for an intake interview. Documentation regarding the student's disability
should be presented at that time.
ACCESS offices are located on every campus. For more information:
