Testing Policy for Students with Disabilities

Assessment Tests

Accommodations based on disability will be granted to comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Students who wish to seek such an accommodation must be registered with the college's Office of Special Services for Students with Disabilities.

In rare instances, when no accommodation is practicable, the student may request a waiver from the college's Scholastic Standards/Course & Standing Committee. A student typically must demonstrate: a) a disability, documented by a certified professional, which affects that student's ability in the skill domain, b) a history of disability-related difficulty with the skill, c) and an evaluation of the request by the office serving students with disabilities, typically indicating that despite good faith efforts to demonstrate proficiency, with all appropriate reasonable accommodations and support services in place, the student has been unable to pass the exam. The waiver applies only at the college the student currently attends.
