Disability Resources

For students with documented disabilities, it is the goal of the college to provide an environment that encourages equal access and participation to its various programs through a variety of services and accommodation. 

Reasonable accommodations are provided in accordance with the various policy statements of the college and in compliance with all applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

The TRIO Student Support Services Program is funded by a grant from the US. Department of Education in the amount of $272,364 per year.
