Center for Access and Accommodative Services (CAAS)
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 provides a variety of services to help support Triton students, from testing accommodations to study tools and our Skill Enhancement and Employee Development (S.E.E.D. program).
Students requesting accommodations need to self-identify with CAAS and provide appropriate documentation of their disability. The process of activating accommodations may take up to two weeks after submitting the required documentation. Accommodations are not retroactive so it is important to apply and activate your accommodations prior to the semester starting.
Placement exams are not timed; therefore, students are encouraged to take their time and try to obtain the highest score possible.
Students seeking the accommodation of using a calculator for the placement exam must apply for the accommodation at CAAS located in Room A-105 by filling out a Confidential Data form and submitting documentation of their disability and/or medical condition. CAAS staff may not be able to review and approve request the day of the placement exam.
Documentation and records submitted to the CAAS office to determine a student’s eligibility for accommodations are kept confidential and within the CAAS office. Records are not disclosed without the student’s written permission.
