College of DuPage is committed to equality of educational opportunities for eligible students with disabilities. If you have the ability to do college-level work and an educational commitment to succeed, we ensure access, provide accommodations and coordinate support services.
All students requesting accommodations need to self-identify with the Center for Access and Accommodations and provide appropriate documentation of their disability. Referrals can be made to outside agencies if students do not have documentation but feel that they might have a disability.
Any information provided by students is voluntary and confidential.
Contact Access and Accommodations before your classes begin to ensure a smoother transition to College of DuPage. Students who request accommodations after the start of term may experience a delay in receiving accommodations.
