Is recent testing required for accomodations for a dual-enrollment class in high school?
Susie Ko - DSS
01:12:29
We advise students to submit the latest/last evaluation along with current IEP. We should have enough relevant information with that combination.
Susie Ko - DSS
01:13:07
When students apply for DSS and submit documentation, a counselor will review and connect with student if we need anything else.
Susie Ko - DSS
01:15:06
Please note the dual enrollment (DE) student who are also getting college credit must go through the college's DSS process to have accommodations for the course to earn college credit.

Kelly, NOVA is planning to have the majority of our classes in person in fall along with online and remote classes also. If conditions change due to the pandemic, we will revert back to remote classes like fall and spring semesters for most classes.
K. Edmead - DSS
01:51:16
Additionally, the service is not offered at an additional cost. Once students have access to the center, they will not have to pay to work with a coach.
