Disability & Accommodation Policy
Students with disabilities (including learning disabilities, hearing or visual impairments, mobility impairments, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders, psychiatric impairments or chronic health disabilities) who apply to CCMS can choose whether or not to disclose their disability to us. We do not use information about a disability to deny admission to a student. There is no separate admissions process at CCMS for students with disabilities. All students who apply to CCMS, including those who have a diagnosed impairment/disability, are evaluated using the same criteria. In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, CCMS provides, at no charge, reasonable accommodations to meet the individual needs of eligible students. Eligibility depends on the nature of the impairment and its impact on the particular individual, and is based on documentation from a qualified professional. It is the student’s responsibility to identify that he/she has a diagnosed impairment/disability and to follow the appropriate procedures to request consideration for reasonable accommodations. Please be aware that CCMS is not required to approve any accommodation that would change the fundamental nature of a course or a curriculum. Course substitutions and/or waivers will not be granted.
