Welcome Message 

Welcome to Kingsborough Community College Access-Ability Services (AAS). The staff of AAS is dedicated to opening doors of equal opportunity to individuals with disabilities at Kingsborough Community College.  

AAS assists students with documented disabilities by determining their eligibility for services and then working with students to determine reasonable accommodations and services, which will, in turn, give them equal access to the college.

It is important for students to remember that, in the post-secondary setting, it is their responsibility to self-identify as students with disabilities and to request disability services. The process starts here at AAS.  

College can be stressful for most individuals. For individuals with disabilities, it can be a daunting task. AAS helps students with disabilities to recognize their potential by removing potential barriers to their education.

The office also provides support through counseling, tutoring and academic advisement.  

We are glad that you chose to visit our site and look forward to seeing you in our offices at D205.

For parents of students with disabilities who are moving on to higher education, please read this important letter distributed by AHEAD, the Association for Higher Education And Disability.
