Due to the obstacles students with disabilities may face, whether physical, medical, learning or psychological, under human rights legislation they are afforded the same opportunity to learn as non disabled students.
Accessibility Services establishes individualized support service programs to facilitate the integration of students with disabilities. These services include the development and implementation of academic accommodations.
Students with disabilities should contact Accessibility Services upon submission of their application to the college. Early self-identification will help us to provide you with the best possible service.
Please be aware that in order to receive these services, students must register with Counselling and Accessibility Services and provide documentation that verifies the disability. Please see our documentation guidelines for more information. For more information on student responsibilities when requesting accommodations, please see the Student Handbook.
The accommodations that students with disabilities are entitled to are determined on an individual basis. Meeting with a counsellor with Accessibility Services will assist students in developing a specialized and individualized plan for their academic success. Counsellors will make referrals to the various services offered at RRC and will be available to meet with students regularly to monitor the effectiveness of these services. Accommodation Policy
