In accordance with state and federal laws, the College provides accommodations for students with disabilities to ensure equal access to its programs and services. Students requesting accommodations should submit appropriate documentation (IEP/504 plan/psychological evaluation) to the Student Affairs department for review. If accommodations are determined to be necessary, the student will receive an Accommodations Notification Letter which the he/she must save and provide to course instructors at the start of each term.
Dual Enrollment students should keep in mind that laws and policies governing accommodations at the college level are different from those in the K-12 environment. For more information regarding the rights of students with disabilities, please see this resource from the Department of Education.
Doral College supports the post-graduation endeavors of its students. For example, students interested in transferring to other postsecondary institutions after the completion of the Associate in Arts degree are provided transfer services including assistance with school selection, applications, and financial aid. Given that this is not a terminal degree and is used most often for academic transfer, Doral College does not provide placement services in the traditional sense for the Associate in Arts program.
In order to further support students and the broader community of affiliate schools and stakeholders in the area of transfer guidance, the College maintains its College101 website. College101 provides step-by-step guidance on the application process, including access to a searchable scholarship database, with an emphasis on first-time freshmen applicants.
The College does provide career and placement assistance to graduates of its Bachelor program to assist them in making the transition to life after the College. Services include resume development and job skills workshops, practice interview sessions, job fairs, and employer-led information sessions. Students are also exposed to potential employers through their field experience and internship requirements, and should view these experiences as an opportunity to build relationships and showcase developing skills. However, Doral College does not make any guarantees of employment or salary upon student graduation.
For more information regarding transfer and partnership agreements the College maintains with other institutions, see the Transfer Agreements page.
Though the College does not directly provide psychological counseling, we provide referrals to students in need of such services. Contact the student affairs help desk or the office directly for more information.
