Students with Disabilities

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 states that, “No qualified handicapped person, shall on the basis of handicap, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity which receives or benefits from federal assistance”. If it is determined that an individual is a qualified person with a disability, then the school will develop a 504 Accommodation Plan to ensure equal access to the instructional program.

The Student Services program offers services for students with special needs. Services for traditional post-secondary adult students with disabilities are provided in the regular adult/vocational classroom. They are provided to students who self-identify and request accommodations. The accommodations are provided via the Section 504 Accommodation Plan for Post-Secondary Adult Vocational Education Students. Students may request accommodation by speaking to an adult/vocational counselor. Additional information can be found at:
