Consistent with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American with Disabilities Act of 1990, the VCCS guarantees that no qualified individual shall by reason of disability be denied access to, participation in, or the benefits of college.  Each qualified person shall receive appropriate, reasonable accommodations upon request to insure full and equal access to educational opportunities, programs and activities. 

College Freshmen, including Dual Enrollment students, are encouraged to begin their accommodation process with the ADA/504 Plan Coordinator in early spring, prior to fall enrollment.  Accommodations are granted throughout each semester.

To provide accommodations, students are to meet with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) before taking the English and Math Virginia Placement Tests.  The VPT may be taken in a quiet, distraction free, SAS Lab, by appointment.

Early application, with documentation assists students in securing accommodations prior to the beginning of each semester.

No action may be taken on behalf of the student, until the student self-declares their need for services and SAS has received their application and supporting documentation.

Responsibilities for selection of the most appropriate accommodations rests with the college.
