No student shall, on the basis of his or her disability, be excluded from participation, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subject to discrimination under any District program, service or activity. The Seattle College District is committed to providing qualified students with a disability an equal opportunity to access the benefits, rights, and privileges of District services, programs and activities in an accessible setting appropriate to the student's needs in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the disability laws of the State of Washington.

The District is committed to meeting our obligation, to provide academic accommodations, including Washington State Core Services, to qualified students with disabilities. The purpose of this policy is to identify the rights and responsibilities of students and for the District under ADAAA/504 to establish clear guidelines for those seeking and receiving reasonable accommodations. To receive accommodations based on disability, students are responsible both for requesting accommodations and for providing appropriate written documentation as defined in the attached implementing procedures.

The Disability Support Services Office on each campus shall be responsible for implementation of this policy and the related procedures.
