Center for Access & Accommodative Services

The mission of the Center for Access and Accommodative Services (CAAS), is to provide campus accessibility and accommodations that foster the development of students' abilities, preparing them to work to their fullest potential to obtain their academic and career goals.

CAAS arranges access and academic accommodations for students who submit a completed CAAS Confidential Data form (available on CAAS webpage) and provide current documentation of a medical condition and/or disability that affects their academic performance. To best prepare for the semester students want accommodations for, it is recommended that they submit a confidential data form and documentation of their medical condition/disability four weeks prior to the start of the semester. Documentation can be sent via email to caas@triton.edu

Should you need an accommodation (for example, testing accommodation), visit the CAAS Office where you can obtain a Confidential Data form and assistance with establishing accommodations.‚Äč
