Roxbury Community College is committed to creating an educational environment that promotes academic excellence and personal exploration for all students. This includes a commitment to achieving equal educational opportunity and full participation for persons with disabilities. Our goal is to ensure a comprehensively accessible college experience where individuals with disabilities have the same access to programs and activities as all others. This policy derives from the College's overall commitment to non-discrimination of all persons in employment, creating accessible facilities, student programs, activities, and services.

To this end, RCC strives to achieve excellence in its services and to assure that its resources are delivered equitably and efficiently to all of its students. To learn more, please access the our Guide to Disability Servicespdf icon

An IEP is designed for grades K-12; college-level documentation is needed for accommodations as you continue your education. Please go to  http://www.ed.gov/ocr/transition.html to view the pamphlet entitled Students with Disabilities Preparing for Postsecondary Education: Know Your Rights and Responsibilities prepared by the  U. S. Department of Education.  This pamphlet clarifies the differences between high school and college.  You may order a copy or read the pamphlet on line.

If you have questions, please contact the Disabilities Services Coordinator (DSC). The DSC coordinates the provision of accommodations for students with disabilities. All accommodations are individualized, flexible, and confidential based on the nature of the disability and the academic environment.
