Vernon College ADA Accommodations
Vernon College provides appropriate accommodations to qualified students in accordance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities (ADA) act of 1990. Accommodations are made on a case-by-case basis. Students with special needs are encouraged to contact the PASS Department Director/Office for Students with Disabilities Coordinator (OSD) as early as possible. Early notice is required to prepare for and provide special accommodations by the first week of class.
All requests for special accommodations due to a disability must be accompanied by appropriate and acceptable documentation. It is the responsibility of the student to provide documentation that qualifies the student as an individual with a disability, as defined by law, and supports the requested accommodation. The student is also responsible for providing current and accurate contact information and for meeting with PASS Department personnel to sign paperwork and receive instructor letters. Special arrangements may be made for distance students who never travel to one of the Vernon College campuses. Students must complete the request process before any accommodations are made.
