Accommodations

To determine what accommodations are necessary to provide equal access, the student must provide specific information from an appropriate professional about his or her disability and its impact on the student in an educational environment. Because accommodations may take time to arrange, the student needs to meet with the Director of Disability Services four to six weeks prior to the first day of each quarter.

The college will not lower the standard measurement of competency for any certificate or degree. Accommodations may include:
  • Priority registration for classes
  • Sign language interpreters for the deaf or hard of hearing
  • Modification of testing (Extra time, quiet location, readers)
  • Alternate format textbooks or reader services
  • Scribes or note takers
  • Ergonomic chairs, desks, keyboards
  • Tape recorders
  • Large print
  • Assistive Technology (Dragon Naturally Speaking, Kurzweil, Zoomtext)
  • CCTV, Magnification devices
  • FM System
  • Specialized equipment
