Spokane Community College complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and other relevant state and federal laws in providing services and accommodations to students with disabilities.

What services are available?

Spokane Community College recognizes our obligation to provide equal access and reasonable accommodations to students who are otherwise qualified to participate in our programs. While it is our responsibility to notify students of services and how to access those services, it is the student's responsibility to self-identify and request accommodations. Accommodations are determined on an individual basis according to what is needed to mitigate the effects of the disability. Services provided through the Center for Students with Disabilities may include but are not limited to:

NEW! Test Proctoring Submission Form

Instructors can now request test proctoring online.

Documentation is usually provided by a physician, psychologist, learning disabilities specialist, or rehabilitation counselor.
