Eligibility, Services & Accommodations

Who is Eligible?

To be served by the ASC, the student must have a verified disability which results in an educational limitation that inhibits the student’s ability to participate in the general educational program of the college without additional specialized services. (Title 5 Regulations, Section 56006.)

The existence of an impairment may be verified, using procedures prescribed by the Chancellor, by one of the following means:

  1. observation by ASC professional staff with review by the ASC coordinator;
  2. assessment by appropriate ASC professional staff; or
  3. review of documentation provided by appropriate agencies or certified or licensed professionals outside of the ASC.

The student's educational limitations must be identified by appropriate ASC professional staff and described in the Academic Accommodations Plan (AAP, prev. known as the Student Educational Contract -SEC) required pursuant to Section 56022. Eligibility for each service provided must be directly related to an educational limitation consistent with Section 56000(b) and Section 56004.
