Hello,
    in order to get help in your courses, you need to visit your school's office of disability support services. Your advisor or any professor can tell you how to do this. You will need to show college staff  the records to prove that you have a disability. These reports will be called Psychological Evaluations. If you do not have any, you will need to ask your college to refer you to a psychologist who can test you. If you have a disability, you have a right to extra help in your classes.

    Your school counseling center can also help you. The counselors can help you get testing and can help you with your depression. They can also tell you who can help you with your financial aid. These people are there to help students, so take advantage of their services.

Best Wishes
