We take access seriously and are committed to making VCC accessible to students with disabilities. Some VCC students with disabilities study in specialized programs, while others are enrolled in regular programs.
In addition to course and program planning assistance, orientation to the college, and ongoing learning assistance, VCC provides specialized services on an individual basis. Disability services can provide support such as exam accommodation, job search assistance and community resource referrals.
Access to equipment and Braille or taped class material is available, as well as interpreting services for classes, events, and study situations.
Some VCC services require advance planning. Applicants are encouraged to make an apppointment with a disability counsellor and/or disability advisor four months before classes begin. To qualify for services, students must have up-to-date documentation of their disability.
