Student ADA Request


In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”), Los Angeles Community College District will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities.

Los Angeles Community College District does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Los Angeles Community College District will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in District programs, services, and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.

Reasonable Accommodation Policy and Procedure

The LACCD Administrative Procedure (AP) 7348 is a comprehensive resource concerning the reasonable accommodation process. It explains how individuals with disabilities should request reasonable accommodation, how requests are processed, and how Requestors may seek review of decisions denying requests.  This procedure supplements relevant personnel policies and collective bargaining agreements and should be read in conjunction with those provisions; it does not alter the District’s obligations under those provisions.

Separate from this reasonable accommodation procedure, there is a process for any employee who is injured at work and becomes disabled either permanently or temporarily.  This is managed by the Workers’ Compensation Unit.  Information about this process and the forms required can be obtained from Human Resources.

Employee Accommodation Requests

Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a District program, service, or activity, should contact the office responsible for sponsoring the event as soon as possible utilizing the appropriate District administrative procedure. Requests should be made as soon as an individual identifies the need for accommodation, as requests for accommodation that are made untimely may be determined to be unreasonable depending on the circumstances.

For answers to questions about the reasonable accommodation procedure at the LACCD or to file a reasonable accommodation request, please contact the appropriate ADA Coordinator.

The ADA does not require the District to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.

The District will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids, services or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.

Student Accommodation Requests

Our Disabled Student Programs and Services at the nine college locations provides educational support for eligible students with disabilities in the achievement of their academic and vocational goals. Assistance such as note-takers, accessible parking, special tutoring, audio CD and E-Text for the blind, mobility aids and equipment loans. In addition, special learning skills classes and computers are available to enhance student classroom success.

Students with a disability and needing reasonable accommodation need to direct their request to the College where they will be attending their classes. Below are direct links to the disabled student program at each of our college locations.

Reasonable Accommodation Appeal

The appeal process is intended to provide employees with the opportunity to bring forward questions regarding substantive or procedural errors that occurred during the accommodation review process. The appeal process is not intended to initiate a new accommodation review process at a higher level. When an alternative resolution process is not successful, employees may formally appeal an accommodation denial utilizing the forms below.

Please note, final appeals must be received within five (5) business days after receiving the Accommodation Request final decision notice.
