Accessibility Services

Eastern Maine Community College is dedicated to providing reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities in accordance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act and Amendments of 2009 (ADAA).  Students requesting accommodations have the responsibility of registering with Accessibility Services in order to request accommodations.  Reasonable accommodations are granted on an individual, case-by-case basis by the Director of Student Learning Support to students with documented disabilities. Questions about Accessibility Services can be directed to Elizabeth Daigle, Director of Student Learning Support, 207-974-4868 or via email

Accommodations are different in college than in high school.  This webpage from the US Department of Education explains important differences in the Q&A section.

Guidelines for Documentation

Documentation can be sent to Accessibility Services by fax 207-974-4883 or email or brought to Accessibility Services in Maine Hall 123. If you would like comprehensive guidelines for documentation, please email

  • Students with recent documentation from high school services can ask the school to provide a copy of the student’s full records with IEP/504, including supporting documentation and evaluations.
  • EMCC students who do not have historical K-12 documentation need to request a formal letter from a current healthcare provider (physician, nurse practitioner, psychiatrist, therapist).
    • Documentation must come from a licensed and qualified healthcare provider appropriate to the disability condition for which accommodations are requested; provider can not be student’s family member.
    • Documentation must include a formal letter, on professional/office letterhead with full contact information for the licensed provider.
    • Documentation must include specific diagnosis, functional impact/barrier, expected stability/change over time, existing treatments/supports, and recommendations for possible accommodations.
  • Accommodations requests for service animals and emotional support animals require additional documentation. Please email to get specific guidelines for service animal and ESA requests.
