About Disability Services

How to disclose a disability for the first time:

1) Complete the Disclosure and Intake Form

2) Submit appropriate disability documentation. Please read about our Documentation Guidelines if you would like to better understand specific documentation requirements. 

3) Submit all documents to LBC|Capital Disability Services. You may email documents to DSO@lbc.edu or fax to (717) 560-8261.

4) Once all required documents have been received by our office, the DS Director will review materials and, if adequate for determining eligibility, will schedule an intake interview. 

How to renew accommodations for an upcoming semester if you have already disclosed a disability to LBC|Capital Disability Services:

1) Upon registering for new courses, students should complete the Accommodations Renewal Form to request an updated Course Access Letter. 

2) After the Accommodations Renewal Form is reviewed by the DS Director, the outcome will be communicated directly to the student. If eligible, an updated Course Access Letter will be sent to the student for him or her to distribute to faculty as needed.
