Services for Students With Disabilities
Florida Community College provides educational
support services through the Auxiliary Aids Program within the
Office of Services for Students With Disabilities.
The College delivers services to students
with disabilities following guidelines established by Section
504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Americans with Disabilities
Act, 1990. These laws ensure equal access to all educational opportunities
by making reasonable modifications in policies, practices, or
procedures when the modifications are necessary to avoid discrimination
on the basis of the disability, unless making the modifications
would fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program or
activity. As appropriate, the following services can be provided
upon receipt of documentation.
- Testing Accommodations
- Adaptive Equipment/Software
- Enlarged or Brailled Instruction Material
- CLAST Waivers or Special Accommodations
- Course Substitutions
- Voter Registration
Any student with a disability requesting
assistance may contact the Specialist for Students With Disabilities
on the appropriate campus.

Articulation Issues: Universities are required
to admit community college students with A.A. and some A.S. degrees;
however, universities may require specific courses for acceptance
to limited access programs. For the student's benefit, the College
will work with the appropriate institution to inform students
of limited access program requirements, and other requirements,
which might affect transfer and graduation. Upon verification,
the College honors course substitutions that have been approved
by other institutions.
