Students with Disabilities

East Central Community College provides reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities through the Office of the Vice President for Student Services. The Vice President for Student Services serves as the American Disabilities Act (ADA) Coordinator. The ADA Coordinator verifies eligibility for accommodations and works with eligible students to develop and coordinate plans to provide reasonable accommodations.

East Central Community College is committed to creating a positive campus environment where students with disabilities are encouraged to pursue careers on the basis of personal interest and ability. This is a non-fee generating program designed to meet the unique needs of ECCC students with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations are offered in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Students with disabilities must self-identify to receive accommodations and special services. Identification requires a student to schedule an appointment with the Vice President for Student Services (ADA Coordinator) and present appropriate documentation verifying the disability.

Self-identification is voluntary. The Vice President for Student Services (ADA Coordinator) will serve students to the extent that their individual needs are made known and reasonable accommodations can be made. Accommodations vary according to the disability. You must request specific accommodations.
