Accessibility Services (AS) works collaboratively with the College community to facilitate equal access for students with disabilities to the educational programs, services and facilities of Rockland Community College. *In addition, AS is a resource to students, faculty, staff and community services to provide education, consultation and guidance regarding disability issues.
*In compliance with Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act and the ADA.
Our goals are to, provide reasonable accommodations and support services, empower students toward self-advocacy, promote achievement of students’ educational and career goals, offer training and support to faculty and staff regarding the needs of students with disabilities, organize and coordinate campus-wide disability awareness, provide guidance regarding the development of college policies, procedures, programs and curriculum to ensure equal access and foster an inclusive educational environment.
It is the student’s responsibility to notify AS of the need for accommodations and to provide appropriate disability documentation, which is kept confidential. Eligibility for services/accommodations from AS is a separate process from Admissions. Students should first complete an Admissions application to the College before requesting services/accommodations from AS. Students are encouraged to contact AS for further information regarding the accommodations request procedures.
