Disability Services

The Disability Services Office operates under the mandate of Section 504 and 508 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Amendments Act of 2008, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability against any "otherwise qualified individual." Individuals seeking accommodations must meet with Disability Services representative and provide documentation to support their request. Reasonable accommodations will be made on a case-by-case basis in order to ensure educational accessibility. Be aware that Accommodations offered through a college are different than a typical high school and will not alter the academic standards of a class.
