Disability Access Center

Tanya Cox

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the City Colleges of Chicago (CCC) makes every effort to integrate students with disabilities into all courses and programs. Accommodations, based on the documentation received and the needs of the student, are designed to ensure that students, who are otherwise qualified, receive equal access to all of CCC's programs and services. CCC does not alter fundamental academic requirements, but it makes reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities.         

The Disability Access Center (DAC) serves as CCC's point of contact and coordination for students with disabilities. The DAC provides a wide range of services and assistance to ensure students with disabilities are able to achieve their maximum potential.
