Useful Tips

Learn useful tips for registering, seeking financial aid and accessing parking and buildings.

Course Registration

Assistance with course registration is available through the Office of ADA Support Services. Students with disabilities are also welcome to use the academic advising services available to all students in the Advising and Transfer Center, Room A102.

Financial Aid

Students with disabilities are eligible to apply for the same types of financial aid available to all students. In addition, students with disabilities may be able to obtain assistance through the Division of Rehabilitation Services. Any individual receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits is eligible for a tuition waiver and should contact the Business Office near the front entrance of the Great Hall. For more information, contact 410-386-8040.

Parking for Individuals with Disabilities

Parking is provided for students with physical disabilities in front of the Allied Health/Nursing Building, between the Allied Health/Nursing Building and the Learning Resources Center, and behind the Fine Arts/Business Training Center. Reserved parking spaces are identified using the familiar "handicap parking only" international symbol. View a map of parking available on the campus.

Parking spaces marked for disabled use require a Motor Vehicle Administration issued disabled license plate or permit.

Temporary permits may be issued by the Office of Facilities Management, Room A203, with proper documentation. Permits are good for up to two weeks and cannot be renewed.

If the temporary disability exceeds the two-week period, a permanent or long term permit must be applied for through the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration.

Building Accessibility

The Facilities Management Office is responsible for the removal or modification of physical barriers throughout the campus. College facilities are regularly examined to ensure accessibility requirements are met. Stairwells in every building are signed "Stair Area of Rescue Assistance, Use for Rescue Assistance during an Emergency". Students with disabilities are encouraged to become familiar with these locations. Questions or concerns related to building accessibility should be directed to the Facilities Management Office at 410-386-8490.
