Need accommodations for your classes?

Our mission is to remove barriers for disabled students by providing access to opportunities at Red Rocks Community College. Accessibility Services supports faculty and staff in creating an environment that is welcoming and facilitates inclusion and learning for students with disabilities.

Red Rocks Community College is committed to following the letter and the spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (pdf).

Accommodations Process

If you have a disability and are interested in connecting with our office, please complete the two forms below. Then, schedule an initial meeting by contacting 303-914-6733 or access@rrcc.eduFor more information, visit the Student Information page.

Students requesting their approved accommodations must complete a Semester Request Form (SRF) for every semester they are enrolled in order to be sent an Accommodations Letter. SRFs can be completed at any point in the semester. 

Accommodations Letters are emailed to the student and their instructor(s) throughout the week prior to the first day of the semester. After the requested semester starts, Accommodations Letters will be sent out within 5 business days. Letters will be sent out in the order that SRFs are received.

Please note that accommodations are not retroactive. Your accommodations will take effect immediately after your Accommodations Letter is issued.
