Students with Disabilities / ADA
Click to see our NEW Support Services for ADA Students (PDF) documentation.
Disability accommodations are offered through the Central Virginia Community
College Counseling Center. It is our desire to help students make the
transition into college life and connect them with those services and
resources needed to be successful in college.
In accordance with Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act and the
Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, CVCC provides reasonable accommodations
to students with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits
one or more major life activities including learning.
It is important for students to understand that at CVCC students who wish to
receive accommodations must self-identify to one of our counselors in order to
begin the accommodation process. Please note that current and appropriate
documentation of a disability is required in
order to obtain requested services.
As students move into the adult world, self-advocacy and self-reliance become
very important skills. The ability to cope with the challenges of daily
living as well as the ability to clearly communicate one's needs contribute
to a successful college outcome.
The links provided on this page will hopefully answer many of the questions
concerning disability services at CVCC. If you are an individual with a
disability and require or desire any assistive devices, services, or other
accommodations, please contact the Counseling Center at 434.832.7800 and
schedule an appointment with one of our counselors. Please indicate that
your appointment concerns accommodations so enough time will be allowed to
cover all issues.
