Getting Started

In-person student services are suspended until further notice. The Support Services page lists services and resources available remotely. Please check College of Marin Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates and Resources for the latest information related to COVID-19.

The first step for any student new to Student Accessibility Services (SAS) at the College of Marin (COM) is to schedule and attend a new student intake orientation meeting. During this orientation our welcoming counseling staff will discuss your individual assessment needs, review all the relevant support services, explain SAS policies and procedures and any other information we need to better assist you in achieving your educational goals. These intake appointments are open to incoming students who are new to the College of Marin, continuing students who are not yet receiving services from SAS as well as individuals who are considering enrolling at College of Marin.

Contact us by phone at (415) 485-9406 or by email at sas@marin.edu to make your appointment today.

When making your appointment, please indicate if you will need accommodations during the appointment such as a reader, writer or an interpreter for the Deaf.

Additionally, if you have a written verification of disability or you have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) from high school, not over three years old, please bring it to your first appointment.

Further Questions?

Our friendly front desk and counseling staff are here to answer any questions you might have about eligibility and services. We are located on the first floor of the Student Services Building, first door around the corner on the left. Come on in and say hello or send us an email at sas@marin.edu.
