Persons with Disabilities

Calhoun Community College provides environmental and programmatic access for persons with documented disabilities as defined in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and/or the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment of 2008.  Any student who desires information about or assistance with needed services for a disability such as classroom accommodations, physical access to facilities or programs, adaptive equipment, or other off- or on-campus resources should contact our office for additional information.

Students who are requesting academic adjustments and modifications for the first time at the College must submit a completed Request for Services packet to the Student Disability Services/ADA Office. Continuing students must complete a Semester Request for ADA Services form each semester. A student who has not been enrolled in classes for two consecutive terms or more must contact the office. Hard copies of the forms can be picked up in the office.

Documentation Guidelines

The College has established documentation guidelines in order to more effectively determine eligibility for services and to create an optimal plan for the individual. The guidelines below should be provided to the doctor, psychologist, or another appropriate professional to ensure the documentation will be as complete as possible. It is the student’s responsibility to provide documentation to Accessibility Services and to request accommodations. All documentation will be reviewed case-by-case and no student should delay requesting accommodations out of concern for not having the appropriate paperwork. Appropriate documentation is defined as that which meets the following criteria. You and your medical professional may also choose to complete the Impairment and Disability Assessment form. This form can be completed by a relevant professional in order to document a disability. This form examines areas that are necessary in order for the Office of Student Disability Services/ADA to serve you.
