Student Accessibility Services

Mission of Student Accessibility Services  

SAS is dedicated to providing students with disabilities, and other accessibility needs, equitable opportunities to fully experience all RCC programs and services. This work is directly related to our nondiscriminatory policy. SAS works with all faculty and staff to support them in their work with ensuring services and programs are accessible by providing one on one support, training, workshops and consulting. This department is as much of a resource to faculty as it is students. This work is rooted in our obligations to ensure that RCC follows all laws and requirements related to ADA, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Our partnership and support to faculty further our mission to serving a diverse community of students and providing each person with the opportunity to use their education at RCC to open new doors.  

Students are recognized as experts in their experience and are engaged in this work as such. Each student is valued for their voice, leadership, and potential for greatness. SAS recognizes each student as a responsible partner in accessing and utilizing all the services available to them through SAS. 

Students Registered with SAS 

Students are required to formally disclose to SAS the condition in which they are requesting accommodations and are guided through the formal process. Accommodations are processed and approved by SAS. 

In order to be registered with SAS and receive accommodations, students must submit appropriate documentation from a licensed provider. This information remains confidential and SAS will not disclose any disability-related information to faculty. On the accommodation letter, the accommodations determined by SAS will be listed. Please review an example of an accommodation letter listed below.  

Teaching Students with Disabilities: 

Discussing Disability and Accommodations

Definition of Universal Design: Ideally, classes should be designed to accommodate all learners, whether or not they have a disability. A universally designed curriculum should have multiple means of engagement, multiple ways to present content, and multiple ways for students to demonstrate their knowledge.
