Student Resources

Access Center

Services Available
The Access Center (formerly Student Disability Services) staff provides advising, advocacy, and facilitation of accommodations to ensure that all students have equal access to a quality education. Staff also provide reasonable accommodations for community members with disabilities who wish to attend college events.

Access Center staff assist students who have documented physical, emotional, or learning disabilities. Access Center personnel assist eligible students with admissions, admissions testing, academic planning, registration, testing (including pre-admission testing and/or assessments), and communication with faculty. The Access Center is administered through Student Services and provides services to students at all campus locations.

Academic Modifications
Students are assisted with Academic adjustments and modifications to ensure that the requirements do not result in the improper denial of any reasonable accommodation or result in discrimination on the basis of a disability. Requests for modification of academic requirements that are essential to the program of instruction or directly related to licensing will not be considered “reasonable” and thus will not be provided as an accommodation.

Recent (within the last 3-4 years) medical documentation to support the existence of a qualifying disability is required.
