Disability Resources and Services
Because Crowley’s Ridge College believes academically qualified individuals with disabilities should have equal opportunity and access to a quality education, we have been actively involved in fostering an environment that encourages full participation by students with disabilities in every segment of the College. The office of the Vice President for Student Affairs provides a variety of services and accommodations to meet the needs of disability related concerns in accordance with the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.
Students who have a documented disability should contact the Vice President for Student Affairs who coordinates and provides a variety of services based the student's individual needs. Examples of some of these services include the following:
- Academic accommodations
- Faculty consultation
- A variety of reasonable accommodations
- Special testing arrangements: extended time, reader or separate room
- Special classroom seating
- Assistance with obtaining alternate format or large print textbooks and Braille materials for the visually impaired
- Use of assistive technology
- Information and referral
Provisions for assistance to students who have either a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities are made. Examples of disabilities include but are not limited to: physical disabilities, dyslexia, visual impairments, hearing impairments, psychological disorders, and learning disorders. To receive services students must provide the office with current documentation of their disability from a qualified health professional or a copy of a high school IEP.
