Welcome! The mission of this office is to partner with the campus community in creating equitable access to eligible students while promoting disability as one aspect of diversity.

We provide support and assistance within the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.

Overview of Registration

To receive assistance through Accessibility Services, students must first request help. A student can either stop by our office located in CC 234, call us at 440-366-4058 or e-mail the office at accessibility@lorainccc.edu

The checklist for registering with Accessibility Services 

  • Students who wish to register with Accessibility Services must provide proper documentation/information regarding their issue. Documentation on appropriate letterhead may be a letter from a doctor, therapist, case worker or other professional that thoroughly outlines the issue and its effects on learning. Or, the student may have the professional fill out a Verification of  Need Form. For students recently graduated from high school, the most recent IEP and MFE are required.

Verification of Disability Form

  • After documentation/information has been obtained, the student will make an intake appointment by calling the Accessibility Services office at 440-366-4058. During the intake, the student will have time to further explain his or her need. The student’s disability information is treated as confidential as required by law. Information about a student’s specific disability will not be released unless the student has given written consent.

Accessibility

All campus buildings have elevators and accessible entrances. These marked entrances are electronically wired and will open with an electronic door opener available for a student’s use through Accessibility Services. Campus parking lots have clearly marked accessibility spaces in all areas as well as van spaces. Wheelchairs are available in the Campus Services office for on-site temporary use by any individual visiting our campus or for those taking classes. However, LCCC does not provide any attendant care. Classroom furniture accommodations may be made through Accessibility Services with adequate notification of the student’s needs.
