St. Charles Community College is committed to providing accessibility and reasonable accommodations to its programs/courses for persons defined as having a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title II and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504. The provision of reasonable accommodations and services is based upon the current impact of the individual's disability on his/her academic performance. As such, it is in the student's best interest to provide updated and appropriate documentation in a timely manner (eight weeks prior to requested start date) to Accessibility Services. Students are encouraged to use services provided by Accessibility Services.
Reasonable accommodations are changes in the academic setting that permit the opportunity for equal access. An accommodation can be denied if it reduces academic standards (fundamental alteration), involves an undue hardship, or is a personal service.
St. Charles Community College is committed to non-discrimination based on disability in every aspect of its academic programming. Accessibility Services was established to ensure equal access (not to assure success) within this educational setting. Accessibility Services is responsible for reviewing requests for accommodations and making decisions regarding equal access issues.
Accessibility Services, in cooperation with the SCC academic environment (administration, staff, faculty, students), is responsible for implementation of equal access.
The procedures manual is subject to change. It serves as a guideline to be used by students, administration and faculty, and may be changed at any time with or without notice.
The Accessibility Services Procedures are designed to assist faculty, staff and students with written institutional procedures for assuring equal access. Disability-related accommodations provided by the institution are sanctioned only through Accessibility Services. The administrative procedures provide an orderly approach to assuring equal access/compliance with ADA and 504. Information regarding Accessibility Services is available on the college website, in the course schedule booklet, college catalog and student handbook.
The College views the provision of reasonable accommodations as a collaborative effort involving administrators, faculty, staff and students.
