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.


Financial Aid
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.


Advising, 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.


Student Employment
Postsecondary programs which employ students may not discriminate on the basis of disability.


Confidentiality
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 permission.

Information regarding disability will be safeguarded in other college areas (i.e., Admissions Office, Financial Aid Office) under the same strict guidelines.
