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.

  • Notetaker
  • Tutor
  • Reader
  • Scribe
  • Interpreter
  • Testing Accommodations
  • Adaptive Equipment/Software
  • Enlarged or Brailled Instruction Material
  • CLAST Waivers or Special Accommodations
  • Course Substitutions

Any student with a disability requesting assistance may contact the Specialist for Students With Disabilities on the appropriate campus.

The Director of Services for Students With Disabilities is responsible for coordinating services for students with disabilities Collegewide.

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.
