Disability Services

Our Disabilities Services Coordinator works with students with disabilities and the campus community to help ensure equal access to CCC’s educational and community programs.  Contact the Disability Services Coordinator if you are in need of accommodations to fully access campus educational or co-curricular opportunities. 

Accommodation requests are considered on a case-by-case basis through an interactive process. To receive accommodations, students must complete an intake appointment and will usually need to provide written documentation of their disability.  Specific disability information is kept confidential and separate from academic records.

Services include:

  • Test-taking facilitation for those with testing accommodations (e.g. extended time, distraction reduced)
  • Reasonable classroom accommodations
  • Access to assistive technology
  • Student advocacy for ensuring accommodations are provided
  • Consultations and collaborations with Instructors
  • Consultations with and referrals to off-campus service providers

Students must request accommodations each term. Please request accommodations as early as possible.

For More Information about Disability Services at Clatsop Community College, Please see the Disability Services Handbook (.pdf, 1.01MB).

Students receiving accommodations or academic adjustments must continue to meet all of the student learning outcomes for coursework, as outlined in course syllabi.  Additionally, all degree program standards and outcomes must be met.

For additional information about preparing for higher education, students can read the publication “Students With Disabilities Preparing for Post Secondary Education: Know Your Rights and Responsibilities” provided by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office or Civil Rights.

Admitted, degree-seeking students with disability documentation on file with the Disability Services office may be eligible for the TRiO Student Support Program. See the Plus Program’s page for more information.

Students with disabilities are also encouraged to utilize additional campus supports such as the Math Assistance Center (MAC) in Towler Hall, Room 211, the Tutoring Center and Writing Lab on the 3rd floor of the Library, and assigned Faculty and Staff Academic Advisors.
