At the bottom of the screen, you will find general tools and resources related to assistive technology (“Tools and Resources”).
In addition, students are encouraged to visit the Academic Success Center to discuss their individual needs and preferences for assistive technology. While the college does not provide extensive assistive technology, it will work with students to recommend technology on a case-by-case basis. The purchase, installation, and maintenance of assistive technology is generally the student’s responsibility. Students are encouraged to contact outside agencies such as Department of Rehabilitation Services and the Veterans Administration for possible funding.
