WCC abides by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which states:
"No otherwise qualified individual with a disability shall, solely by reason of such disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of a public entity, or be subjected to discrimination by any such entity."
"Otherwise qualified" in the ADA means that only those people who are able to meet the technical and academic qualifications for entry into a school, program, or activity are protected by the ADA. This means accommodations that are a "fundamental alteration" of a program or which would impose an undue financial or administrative burden are not required.
The college has no responsibility for identification and evaluation of students with disabilities. If an evaluation is needed, the expense is the student's responsibility. If you are a student who would like to receive disability services you will need to follow the procedures listed below.
