Lansing Community College is committed to providing services and accommodations necessary to make its programs and activities accessible to all qualified students, regardless of a disabling condition. Services coordinated through the Center for Student Access (CSA) ensure eligible students equal access to an education.
The goal is to maximize the student educational potential while helping to develop and maintain the student independence. The program philosophy is one that encourages self-advocacy. An important activity of the office is to inform students of services and adaptive equipment available to them on campus and in the community. Students are encouraged to independently access services and to best meet their individual needs. Students are required to identify their needs and to register with CSA to be considered eligible for accommodations. All services are based on individual needs.
Lansing Community College, in compliance with state and federal laws and regulations including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, does not discriminate on the basis of disability in administration of its education-related programs and activities and has an institutional commitment to provide equal educational opportunities for disabled students who are otherwise qualified.
