Academic Accommodations

To afford students with disabilities equal access to BCC’s programs and activities, we offer academic accommodations.  Academic accommodations allow students the same participation available to students without disabilities and may come in the form of services or alternate methods designed to help students meet academic tasks.  Accommodations are prescribed by the SAS counselor based upon review of the student’s individual needs, the documentation of disability, a student’s course selection, and a student’s academic goals.  Academic and disability-management counseling are available throughout a student’s participation in SAS.

Academic accommodations may include but are not limited to:

  • priority registration
  • note-takers
  • assistive technology
  • specialized equipment
  • interpreters or steno captioning
  • testing accommodations
  • alternate media
