Disability Services

Mission Statement 

Columbia College is committed to providing educational opportunities for all students and assisting them in making their college experience successful and positive.  In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Columbia College recognizes a student with a disability as anyone who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity.  Columbia College coordinates the provision of reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities.  

All reasonable accommodations are individualized, flexible and confidential based on the nature of the disability and the academic environment.

The mission of the Office of Disability Services at Columbia College is to create an academic, social and physically accessible environment for students with disabilities by removing obstacles to learning.
