Your Civil Rights
Students with disabilities are responsible for contacting Student Access Services if reasonable accommodations are not implemented in an effective or timely manner. Student Access Services will work with college personnel and the student to resolve disagreements regarding recommended accommodations.
If Student Access Services personnel are unable to resolve a situation, students with disabilities who believe they experienced discrimination or harassment on the basis of their mental or physical disability may file a grievance the Associate Dean of Equity and Compliance as outlined in the Civil Rights Grievance Procedure (SP4-31a or SP3-50b) located on the ACC Policies and Guidelines webpage. Forms are available on the ACC Grievance and Appeal Procedures webpage.
ACC will make appropriate arrangements to ensure that people with disabilities are provided appropriate accommodations, if needed, to participate in the grievance procedure.
