The college's Center for Access and Assistive Technology works to assist all qualified students with disabilities in the pursuit of their educational objectives. We attempt to coordinate the students' needs with services and resources available within our college system, and to ensure accessible educational opportunities for students according to their individual needs.

Our philosophy is that the individuals we serve are students first, and their disabilities are secondary. The office strives to coordinate services that will enable students with disabilities to act as independently as possible in a supportive atmosphere that promotes self-reliance. It is the students' choice whether or not they utilize the available services.
