Board Policy


Academic Accommodations for Students with Disabilities


Under Federal and State laws*, the College is required to make modifications to academic requirements and practices as necessary in order to ensure that they do not discriminate against a qualified student with a disability. The College is also required to have a policy and procedure for responding to students with verified disabilities who request academic accommodations. Students with disabilities have the right to receive reasonable academic accommodations in order to create an educational environment where they have equal access to instruction without fundamentally altering any course, educational program or degree.






























*Applicable law includes the following: Americans with Disabilities Act (PL 101-336); Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504 [34 C.F. R s 104.3 (j)(1) and (k)(3) and s 104.44 (a) and (b) (1) (ii)]; Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974: Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations
