Accessibility Services

Providing equal access to all college programs and services.
The Office of Accessibility Services is working remotely for the Spring 2021 semester.

The Office of Accessibility Services recognizes disability as an important aspect of diversity. We work with students with disabilities who wish to request academic adjustments, reasonable modifications, auxiliary aides and/or services to provide equal opportunity for academic success.

Students: Register with the Office of Accessibility

To receive accommodators, students must complete a confidential registration process through the Office of Accessibility:

  1. Complete and submit the Accommodation Request Form
  2. Submit disability documentation (completed by a professional)
  3. Attend an Accommodation Planning Meeting

Caregiver Role

High School: Caregivers play an important role in creating and maintaining an IEP or 504 Plan. They may also communicate frequently with teachers and resource staff.

College: Students are entitled to FERPA protections. The Office of Accessibility Services only communicates with the student and faculty regarding accommodations. Faculty and the Office of Accessibility Services do not regularly communicate regarding students. Students must provide signed permission for other types of communication to occur. If a student has an issue or concern regarding accommodations, they must contact the Office of Accessibility Services for assistance.

Course Related Accommodations

High School: There are many different types of accommodations in the K-12 system. A student’s IEP might include the modification of curriculum, shortening of assignments or reduction of work.

College: Accommodations at the college level provide access, therefore the curriculum, work load and expectations are the same as students without disabilities.

Documentation of Disability

High School: The school is responsible for identifying students with disabilities. A staff member coordinates with faculty so they are aware of the accommodations.

College: Students must self-identify and provide documentation of their disability. Students must also provide Accommodation Letters to faculty each semester to ensure they are aware of the accommodations. 

Relevant Laws

High school: Students are accommodated under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Accommodations provided for students are designed to ensure student success.

College: Accommodations at the college level are provided for under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and are designed to provide access to the curriculum.

Student Responsibilities

As a college student (including CCP students under 18 years of age), the student is responsible for their educational experience. They can choose to register with the Office of Accessibility Services and to utilize accommodations each semester.
