Center for Disability
Services Student Handbook
Recruitment, Admissions, Registration
Qualified persons may not, on the basis
of disability, be denied admission to, enrollment in, or participation in
college programs or activities, or be discriminated against in admissions or
recruitment. The number or proportion of persons admitted will not be limited on
the basis of disability.
The college shall not provide less
financial assistance to any students with disabilities based on their
disabilities, limit their eligibility for assistance, or otherwise discriminate
against them. Based on requests and supporting information provided by students
to financial aid programs, financial aid awards will recognize the particular
needs of students with disabilities. Accommodations will be made within the
limits prescribed by state and federal regulations.
Counseling and Placement Services
Personal, academic, and career counseling, are available in accessible settings
without discrimination on the basis of disability.
Academic and career counseling is
available in CDS (S114) or in the College Center with an academic advisor.
Personal counseling may be obtained through the counseling and career
development center in the College Center. Qualified students with disabilities
shall not be counseled or advised toward more restrictive career objectives than
are nondisabled students with similar interests and abilities. This does not
preclude providing factual information about licensing and certification
requirements which may present obstacles to persons with disabilities in their
pursuit of particular careers.
Postsecondary programs which employ
students may not discriminate on the basis of disability.
The Center for Disability Services
maintains strict confidentiality of student records and information. Students'
instructors will be informed of students' needs for accommodations only after
students have signed a release of information form.
Students' academic programs will
be discussed with no one outside of the center without students' written
Information regarding disability
will be safeguarded in other college areas (i.e., Admissions Office, Financial
Aid Office) under the same strict guidelines.
