VWCC Policy

Virginia Western Community College and Student Support Services assumes no responsibility for the cost of medical or educational testing for the purposes of diagnosing a disability. While Student Support Services will be happy to refer clients to area agencies and other professionals, it is the responsibility of the student to arrange for professional services and to pursue necessary steps in securing all documentation of his/her disability.

Appropriate and reasonable accommodations will be determined by a qualified professional of the REACH/Student Support Services staff based upon the requests made by the student, documentation of the disability, and what is allowable under the law: Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Accommodations ensure equal access to educational opportunities, but do not guarantee academic success.

It is the policy of the Virginia Community College System and Virginia Western Community College to maintain and promote equal employment and educational opportunities without regard to race, color, sex, age, religion, disability, national origin, or other non-merit factors. For further information, contact the Title IX Coordinator in Fishburn Hall, Room 018-B, at 857-6067 or the ADA/504 Coordinator, The Student Center, Room 102, at 857-7286.
