Every otherwise qualified student with a disability has the right to:

  1. Equal access to educational and student programs, services, jobs, activities and facilities throughout the College.

  2. Reasonable and effective accommodations, auxiliary aids and services, as determined on a case-by-case basis.

  3. Appropriate confidentiality regarding information pertaining to disability, including disability disclosure, except as permitted or required by law.

  4. Information reasonably available in accessible formats.

  5. Utilize, without retaliation, the grievance procedure if the student believes that the College is not providing the appropriate accommodation, academic adjustment, and/or appropriate auxiliary aid and services.

  6. Utilize, without retaliation, complaint processes and investigative procedures available at The Arizona Civil Rights Division of the Attorney General's Office (www.azag.gov/civil_rights), the Office of Civil Rights at the United States Department of Education (www.ed.gov), or the United States Department of Justice (www.ada.gov).

Every qualified student with disabilities has the responsibility to:

  1. Meet the College's qualifications, including essential academic and code of conduct standards.

  2. Provide the College with a signed "Authorization to Release Confidential Information" form, authorizing the College and the ARS office to receive disability documentation, and/or share information with College faculty, staff, or any other indicated agencies or persons, including diagnosing professionals themselves.

  3. Identify as an individual with a disability and request accommodation in a timely manner. This includes the student's responsibility to advise his/her instructor regarding approved accommodations, and may also include the responsibility to make special arrangements with the instructor.

  4. Provide documentation from appropriate professional sources verifying the nature of the student's disability, functional limitations, and the rationale for specific accommodations being recommended.

  5. Follow the specific procedures for obtaining reasonable and appropriate accommodations, academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary aids, as outlined in ADA & Equal Opportunity Reasonable Accommodation Guidelines for Students.
