It is the policy of the Board of Trustees to provide reasonable accommodation for students with disabilities. The College is committed to the full and total inclusion of all individuals and to the principle of individual empowerment.

The Board authorizes the Disability Support Services office to develop procedures for providing reasonable accommodation to students with disabilities, including but not limited to:

  1. Procedures that specify the process for reasonable substitution of any requirement for admission to the College, admission to a program of study, entry to upper division, or for graduation, where the inability to meet requirements due to disability does not constitute a fundamental alteration of the nature of the program.
  2. Procedures that provide students with opportunities to assume responsibility for their education and to share with the College responsibility for identifying appropriate accommodations.
  3. Procedures to provide appropriate course substitutions and testing accommodations and waivers.
  4. Procedures to increase the chances that persons with disabilities will not, on the basis of disability, be denied full and equal access to and enjoyment of academic and co-curricular programs or activities.
