RichmondCC is committed to providing support and services to students with disabilities to help them access quality education as directed under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Reasonable accommodations are provided, when necessary and appropriate, so students with disabilities can access programs and activities enjoyed by all at our college.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act states: “No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States . . . shall, solely by reason of her or his disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
Title II, Subpart B, §35.130 of the Americans with Disabilities Act states: “No qualified individual with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of a public entity, or be subjected to discrimination by any public entity.”
RichmondCC recognizes a “qualified individual with a disability” as one who meets the federal definition of disabled. A person with a disability is defined under Title II as any person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of the individual; has a record of such an impairment; or has been regarded as having such an impairment. Major life activities include the ability to care for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working.
