Services for Students with Disabilities
Huntington Junior College is committed to full compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and HJC’s own non-discrimination policy that states: No form of harassment will be tolerated, including harassment for the following reasons: race, national origin, religion, disability, pregnancy, age, military status, or sex.
In general a person with a disability is defined as any person who: (1) has a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities; (2) has a record of such an impairment; or (3) is regarded as having such an impairment. Reasonable accommodations may include, but are not limited to extended time on examinations; modified testing procedures; use of academic aides in the classroom, such as note takers and sign language interpreters; substitution of similar or related work for a non-fundamental program requirement; early advisement and assistance with registration and obtaining necessary materials for class; the provision of special furniture, equipment, or other adaptations in a classroom, laboratory, or other facility; provision of access to residential or other structures.
Huntington Junior College will work with each student on an individual basis to determine what reasonable accommodations will be provided. Students seeking additional assistance should contact the President, Huntington Junior College’s disability coordinator.
