Lauren Daley
Director, ACCESS CENTER (Email:

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the City Colleges of Chicago (CCC) makes every effort to integrate students with disabilities into all courses and programs. Accommodations, based on the documentation received and the needs of the student, are designed to ensure that students, who are otherwise qualified, receive equal access to all of CCC's programs and services. CCC does not alter fundamental academic requirements, but it makes reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities.  

The ACCESS CENTER (AC)serves as CCC's point of contact and coordination for students with disabilities. The DAC provides a wide range of services and assistance to ensure students with disabilities are able to achieve their maximum potential.  

Our Mission

We provide students with ACCOMMODATIONS that help to eliminate barriers to COMMUNICATION and with student’s COOPERATION, foster an environment of EQUITY and SUPPORT in order to ensure quality SERVICES.

Our Services

Each of our seven colleges has an ACCESS Center staffed by professionals who can guide you through the process of receiving accommodations based on your documented disability. If you don’t have a diagnosis of a disability, but you suspect that you might have one, our staff can advise you on next steps and make appropriate referrals.  

All conversations and services through our office and any documents submitted remain confidential.
