- Contact the Learning/Access Center to discuss enrollment (this is necessary even if the student has a special parking permit for individuals with disabilities issued by the county/state).
- Complete handicapped parking application through the Department of Public Safety.

Attending Campus Events
Accommodations for students and staff for campus events are coordinated by the Learning/Access Center. Students must notify the L/AC to request accommodation needs no later than one week prior to the event (e.g. sign language interpreters, CART [Communication Access Real-time Translation], remote captioning, special seating or wheelchairs, or accessible transportation for an off-campus trip sponsored by the Institute).
Departments must notify the L/AC about event dates as soon as possible, but no later than one week prior to the event. The L/AC will determine the type of services (e.g. sign language interpreters, remote captioning, the provision of special seating or wheelchair, and accessible transportation for off-campus events) necessary to provide access to event content and material.
To discuss accessibility needs for an upcoming event, please contact the L/AC at 718.802.3123 or LAC@pratt.edu.
