NOVA’s disability support services are not limited to traditional on-campus students; ELI’s on-line students may also request appropriate accommodations for documented disabilities! Perhaps the best way to start the inquiry or request process would be to contact ELI’s Disability Support Services (DSS) Liaison, David Highsmith. David is one of ELI’s counselors, and he is available to address general questions you may have about disability support services; he can also walk you through the process for requesting accommodations at NOVA. You may reach David at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-323-2404.
Another great source for information on disability support services at NOVA is the DSS website. After carefully reviewing pertinent portions of this website, check-out the “Students with Disabilities Intake Packet” link in the “How to Begin” paragraph. Please note that the intake packet (and supporting documentation) must be processed through one of NOVA’s six campus-based DSS offices – and you’ll find contact information for all six offices directly below the “How to Begin” paragraph.
