Services for Students with Disabilities

The purpose of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is to extend to people with disabilities civil rights similar to those now available on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, and religion through the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  It prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in the private sector employment, services rendered by state and local governments, places of public accommodation, transportation, and telecommunications services.

It is the policy of the College to accommodate students with disabilities, pursuant to federal and state laws.  Services available to disabled students include, but are not limited to, personalized orientation to campus, assistance with course registration, special parking, assistance with class scheduling, tutoring, recording of lectures, reader service, special seating arrangements, interpreter services, recording of class lectures, physical access to educational and related facilities and other reasonable accommodations.  The College campus is accessible to wheelchairs.  Any student needing accommodations must contact the Student Success/504 Coordinator in the Division of Student Affairs.  All students with disabilities are encouraged to contact the Division of Student Affairs for assistance, additional information on services and the Disability Handbook.
