The Special Services Center offers specialized services
to students with disabilities to allow them equal access to college programs
and services as mandated by Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA) of 1990, as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of
1973. Under ADA, an individual with a
disability is regarded as one who has any of the following: has a physical or
mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities;
has a record of such impairment; is regarded as having such impairment.
Students who are eligible to receive services will meet with the Special
Services Counselor to discuss appropriate accommodations and auxiliary aids
that the student may use during the semester or duration of their program.
Types of services provided by the Special Services Center
include but are not limited to academic and testing accommodations,
note-takers, readers, sign language interpreting services, academic advising,
assistance with registration, and equipment loans in the form of digital
recorders, low vision equipment, specialized reading software, and calculators.
The Special Services Center also provides students, staff, and the general
community with resource materials and information on disabilities.
