About the Accessibility Center

CCD's Accessibility Center provides leadership and facilitate equal access to institutional opportunities in order for students with disabilities to develop independence, self-advocacy skills, learn, and achieve personal and professional success.

The Accessibility Center (AC) is committed to serving students with physical health, mental health, learning, and/or temporary medical conditions and believes everyone should have access to the resources they need to reach their academic potential. The AC opens the door to a rich college experience by providing services, resources, and reasonable accommodations for our students with disabilities.

Students with documented disabilities who need reasonable accommodations to access their courses should apply for services at the Accessibility Center (AC) or call. Faculty members are not obligated to provide accommodations without proper notification from the AC.

CCD is committed to providing equal access for persons with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADAAA) Amendments Act of 2008 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, in addition to Section 508. In support of its commitment to provide equal access to all students, CCD offers accommodations and support through the Accessibility Center (AC). Through the AC office, all students will have equal access to all programs, services, and activities offered at CCD.
