Accessibility Services

火博体育致力于确保残疾学生有平等的机会参加所有提供的课程和活动. Accessibility Services is a resource to SJC students, employees, and community members.


How to Request Accommodations

It is best to start requesting accommodations early, as it may take a few weeks to get them in place. The Accessibility Services office will communicate with you primarily through your San Juan College email.

  1. Login to MySJC.
  2. Click on the Accessibility Services button in the Popular Links section. 
  3. Complete the Academic, Housing, or Emotional Support Animal application for the accommodation you request. 
  4. Once you complete the accommodation application, 协调员将审查您的申请,并在一周内与您联系,安排入学预约. Once the intake appointment is completed, the Coordinator will review the information and determine the appropriate accommodations. 
  5. The Coordinator will notify the Student of approved accommodations via their San Juan College email.

Academic Accommodations

当学习材料的设计或交付对学生造成障碍时,由于他们的残疾,需要提供学术便利. Although students are required to meet the same outcomes as their classmates, how they do that may be different. Students who need academic accommodations need to self-disclose, apply for services, and if they are eligible, request their letters each semester. 

Students must request academic accommodations each semester. 

Academic Accommodations Guidelines

Health Care Provider Form

Dual credit students may be eligible for accommodations for their college classes. However, 即使高中生正在接受个性化教育计划或504计划的修改或调整, they do not automatically transfer to the college setting.  Dual credit students are required to follow the same steps as regular college students to request services.

Suitable accommodations will be discussed and determined by the Coordinator and the student.

学生必须完成这两个步骤,才能确定是否有资格获得适当的住宿.  Submitting documentation like an Individualized Education Plan, 504 Plan, 或没有完成上述两个步骤的其他评估不足以使住宿请求为人所知. 

根据《火博体育官网》,为临时残疾提供的便利并不是法律规定的. However, 有临时残疾的学生可以根据需要获得免费住宿. To determine eligibility for accommodations, the student must follow the same process as other students.

  • Alternate Format Alternate format may include enlarged font, braille, audio books, etc. The student should contact the Instructional Assistant in the Disability Technology Lab for assistance. The student must provide a copy of the receipt when requesting books in audio format. 我们强烈鼓励学生尽早申请其他格式的材料,以确保在上课前获得材料. SJC will attempt to provide material in alternate format within 7 days of the request.
  • Use of software 语音到文本(龙自然说话听写)和文本到语音(库兹韦尔)软件可在SJC东部, SJC West, and Main campuses.
  • Copies of Notes 协调员将与学生一起确定将提供的笔记服务的类型. The student will be required to sign the note taker agreement each semester.

  • Captioning 教师或演讲者必须确保在火博体育使用的材料可以被所有人使用. Videos must have accurate captioning.
  • FM Systems Students and visitors should request the loan of an FM system at least 3 days in advance of use.
  • Interpretation To best ensure interpreting services will be available, 我们强烈鼓励学生和访客在知道需要这项服务时尽快提出要求. Interpretation services may be provided by a live interpreter or via video remote interpreting.

  • 我们鼓励学生早点到教室,这样学生就可以选择一个有利于学生学习风格和个人需求的座位.
  • Although Accessibility Services will make every effort to have the room ready before the first day of class, if the student uses a wheelchair, 学生可能需要联系无障碍服务办公室,提醒他们是否需要在教室里放置无障碍桌.
  • Classroom furniture marked with the disability access symbol is reserved for students with disabilities.

  • Test time may be extended based on student need.
  • Testing in a separate or distraction free environment may be appropriate.
  • Tests may be provided in audio format
  • If indicated, use of software or a scribe may be approved.

大多数住宿由咨询和咨询中心的残疾技术实验室协调, Room 4115/1B.

对于在火博体育住房遇到障碍或无障碍问题的学生,可以提供住房住宿. If students need changes to the housing environment due to their disability, they must self-disclose and apply for services. If the housing assignment changes, contact the Accessibility Services Office to update your information.

If you would like to request an Emotional Support Animal, you must also complete an Emotional Support Animal application and documentation.

Students requesting continuing accommodations for Housing must contact Accessibility Services at accessibilityservices@newbetterhome.com before the move-in date.

Students may appeal the accommodation decisions to the San Juan College Vice President of Student Services. Students wishing to appeal a request for accommodation should complete the Accommodation Appeal Form.

SJC尽一切合理的努力,按照《火博体育官网》和1973年《火博体育》第504条的规定,为残疾人提供便利. In keeping with this commitment, 个人护理人员(pcs)可能是必要的,以满足残疾学生的个人需求,使他/她能够参加学院的活动, services, and programs.

Service Animals Protocol

Definition of Disability

Disability is defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) as: (1) a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity; or (2) a record of a physical or mental impairment that substantially limited a major life activity; or (3) when an entity (e.g., an employer) takes an action prohibited by the ADA based on an actual or perceived impairment. 42 U.S.C. § 12102(2); see also 29 C.F.R. § 1630.2(g). 一个人必须满足以下三个标准中的至少一个,才能成为《火博体育》规定的残疾人.

(2) The phrase “major life activities” means functions such as caring for one's self, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working.

(3) The phrase “has a record of such an impairment” means has a history of, or has been misclassified as having, a mental or physical impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.

(4) The phrase is “regarded as having an impairment” means—

(i)身体或精神有损害,但不会严重限制主要生活活动,但被公共实体视为构成这种限制;

(ii) Has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits major life activities only as a result of the attitudes of others toward such impairment; or

(iii)不存在本定义第(1)款所定义的缺陷,但被公共实体视为存在上述缺陷.

《火博体育官网》(ADA)并没有具体列出所涵盖的所有残疾.

Section 504 of the Americans with Disabilities Act

No otherwise qualified individual with a disability shall solely by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act

任何合格的残疾人都不得被排除在服务的参与之外或被剥夺服务的福利, programs, or activities of a public entity. The ADA Amendments Act of 2008 provided changes to the statute and regulations for Titles I, II, and III and clarify (a) who has a disability entitled to protection under the ADA and Section 504, (b) who is entitled to accommodations, and (c) how those determinations are made and by whom.
