Services for Students with Disabilities

Students in COCC Science CenterWelcome to Central Oregon Community College and the office of Services for Students with Disabilities. COCC strives to make available to all students the opportunity for an excellent and rewarding education. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 provide federal guidelines which help the College ensure equal access to all students.

Faculty- please visit our department's intranet page for accommodation information during the COVID-19 impact. 

Students- Please contact us if you have any questions/concerns about how your accommodations transfer to the online environment or if you are facing new barriers. You are still responsible for sending your letter of accommodations to your instructors if you are wishing to request accommodations for your online course.  You may experience that some of your accommodations are not needed, as the online environment may have reduced the barriers you once faced in the classroom.
