RRCC offers many special services to students with disabilities. The college complies with and fully supports Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, with amendments of 1974, as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 regarding non-discrimination based on disability.
Reasonable accommodation is provided upon request for persons with disabilities. If you require an accommodation to participate in any class, program, service, or other activity at RRCC, contact the Office of Disability Services (ODS).
Documentation of disability assists the ODS staff in collaborating with the student to determine reasonable accommodations and/or services, which are provided on a case-by-case basis. If the submitted documentation is incomplete or does not support the student’s request for accommodations and/or services, the student may be asked to provide additional documentation. For example, an Individualized Education Plan, 504 Plan, or Summary of Performance (SOP) from a secondary school without supporting information generally is not considered to be sufficient documentation.
In general, documentation should include the following:
The credentials of the evaluator(s) documentation must be provided by a licensed or otherwise properly credentialed professional who has undergone appropriate and comprehensive training, has relevant experience, and has no personal relationship with the individual being evaluated. The individual making the diagnosis must be qualified to do so (e.g., an orthopedic limitation might be documented by a physician, but not a licensed psychologist). More specifically, the license needs to be granted by the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) rather than a certificate from the Department of Education.
