Accessibility Services partners with the campus community in creating equitable access to eligible students while promoting disability as one aspect of diversity.  Employee accommodation requests should be directed to the Benefits Coordinator in Human Resources. 

Accessibility Services supports students with disabilities that include physical mobility, chronic health, psychiatric conditions, sensory limitations, and learning disabilities within the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. 

Lorain County Community College is committed to creating equitable access to eligible students by providing reasonable accommodations. A reasonable accommodation includes actions to eliminate or reduce physical or instructional barriers to learning. Accommodations are individualized to a student’s needs, which can include physical accessibility and participation in course activities. Accommodations are reasonable unless they:

  • Alter or remove essential requirements.
  • Fundamentally alter the nature of the program.
  • Impose undue financial or administrative burden.
  • Pose a threat to others.

The determination that an accommodation is unreasonable is an institutional decision that must meet legal and educational requirements. Though the academic judgments involved in such decisions are typically the prerogative of the academic division involved, those judgments must be made within legal parameters. Therefore, such determinations require collaboration between faculty, the academic division and Accessibility Services. Faculty members may not unilaterally determine that an accommodation is unreasonable.
