To support the educational pursuits of persons with disabilities in our service area, it is the mission of Virginia Highlands Community College to 1) disseminate information to increase awareness of services available to persons with disabilities, 2) assist with the matriculation of persons with disabilities into the college environment, 3) develop and implement disability-related support services that promote the educational and personal development of persons with disabilities by networking with campus and community based resources, and 4) assist with the successful integration of persons with disabilities into continued educational activities and/or the world of work.
Students with disabilities who seek accommodations should provide documentation from a qualified professional that includes a full clinical description, current functional limitations, and a prognosis to include any expected future decline in functional ability. This documentation should also include information about the methodology used to make a diagnosis, specific results of the assessments used, summary data, and specific assessment scores based on adult norms where having such additional information will assist colleges in engaging in a deliberative and collaborative decision-making process that considers each student’s unique situation and experience. Students should submit the documentation to the Project EXCEL Coordinator, located in ISC 120.
