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 serves as CCC’s point of contact and coordination for students with disabilities. The ACCESS Center provides a wide range of services and assistance to ensure students with disabilities are able to achieve their maximum potential. The short-term goal is to help students with disabilities succeed in their academic pursuits. Long-term, ACCESS services are designed to assist students make the transition from college to work.
