Accommodation Services

The Disability Accommodation Service office is located in the Academic Resource Center inside the Academic Resource Center.  We are committed to providing quality service and support to students with disabilities.  Our purpose is to remove barriers for students with documented disabilities to ensure equal access to educational opportunities and prepare to enter the workforce.

Iowa Central Community College has developed policies and procedures to meet the requirements set forth by the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) and section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act. These policies and procedures are used to determine reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities to meet academic standards required for their educational program.

Reasonable accommodations and resources include:

  • Extended Test Time
  • Test Reader
  • Dictionary
  • Visual/Hearing Impairment Aides
  • Tape Recorder for Lectures
  • Others as necessary and deemed reasonable
