This Office is a National Voter Registration Act Voter Registration Site.
The Center for Student Accessibility is a New York State Agency-Based Voter Registration Site, where students with disabilities are offered information, voter registration application forms and the opportunity to register to vote. We will be glad to help you fill out the form or provide assistance registering through CUNYfirst. There is no obligation to register to vote and the student's decision will have no effect on services offered by The Center for Student Accessibility.
Voter registration information and application forms are also available at the website for the State Board of Elections of the State of New York at http://www.elections.ny.gov/
The mission of the Center for Student Accessibility is to facilitate reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities ensuring equal access to academic and co-curricular programming in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Through robust student support programming, comprehensive services, and a commitment to student learning, staff members work toward creating an environment that fosters empowered students who will realize their potential in a higher education setting. The Center for Student Accessibility believes students need the best preparation possible for success in a global society and competitive workforce. As a result of the intentional efforts of committed professional staff, students with disabilities will be among the most engaged, prepared, and successful students at the College of Staten Island.
What services are available for students with disabilities?
The Center for Student Accessibility, (CSA), is a part of the Division of Student Affairs. The Director and staff of the CSA will work with you to provide accommodations and services. Reasonable accommodations and additional services depend on the documentation students provide to the office. We will work with students to establish the right combination of accommodations and services in an effort to foster full participation in coursework and in the larger college community. Staff members are committed to student success and we are advocates for our students’ needs.
