Services

Our ADA/Disability Office provides a variety of services tailored to individual needs and documentation of the disability. The office acts as a liaison with faculty, staff and outside agencies and assists students with special test-taking arrangements, classroom accommodations and resource referrals. All services provided by the ADA/Disability Office are free of charge. All students with documented disabilities are eligible to receive services. Disabilities include physical, emotional, psychiatric, psychological, attention deficit disorder, and/or learning disabilities.

Services include test-taking adjustments, note-takers, readers, special equipment, extended time and quiet testing, among others. Accommodations are based on individual needs supported by testing/documentation. Some accommodations, such as alternate text may be available with qualifying disabilities.

In compliance with Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and most recently, The ADA  Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), Cochise College seeks to provide support services to those students whose disabilities require special assistance. The college uses a reasonable accommodation process to determine a meaningful adjustment for students with disabilities to participate in the educational process.

In compliance with Section 508, this website is “screen reader” friendly. Images are embedded with text descriptions, videos include text captions and forms are available in html format or accessible PDFs.
