Disclosing your disability during the admission process is voluntary and is a separate process from requesting accommodations.

If you are applying under the Individual Review Process and you believe that your disability is related to your Regents Admission Index score it might be helpful to include this information in your personal statement.

Tutoring is not an academic accommodation at the college level. There are tutor referral sources on campus for use by all students. Tutoring is provided for a fee. It may also be possible to obtain tutoring at your residence hall.
That is your choice. For example, if reading is difficult for you, it might be helpful to tell your academic advisor about this so they avoid suggesting a number of reading intensive courses during the same semester.
Services for students who are temporarily disabled are available. The application process is the same. If, for example, you injured your dominant hand, we may work to find an assigned note-taker for your classes.
