Student Accessibility Services
Student Accessibility Services (SAS) at CCBC is dedicated to providing reasonable accommodations to eligible students with disabilities, ensuring they have an equal opportunity to excel in their academic pursuits.
The primary objective of SAS is to oversee compliance with various federal and state civil rights statutes that safeguard the rights of individuals with disabilities. This includes ensuring adherence to laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, the ADA Amendments Act, and Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
One of the core responsibilities of Student Accessibility Services is to guarantee that all facilities and programs offered by the Community College of Baltimore County are in line with federal, state, and local laws concerning equal access for individuals with disabilities. This encompasses making necessary adjustments and modifications to facilities and curricula, accommodating the diverse needs of students with disabilities.
