Baltimore City Community College seeks to ensure that people with disabilities are given full access to and participation in all aspects of college life by removal of both physical and attitudinal barriers. BCCC is an institution that welcomes and supports a diverse student body. By embracing our core values of integrity, honesty, respect, quality, diversity, learning and leadership we hope to create a learning environment that encourages as well as challenges students.
The Disability Support Services Center (DSSC) provides students and faculty with assistance and information for meeting the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and integrating students with disabilities into Baltimore City Community College. The DSSC facilitates the implementation of reasonable accommodations and services for students who self- identify as having a documented disability. Documentation of a disability is required to determine the need for and what type of special aids or adaptations may be helpful on campus.
Accommodations and services are rendered based on the students documented needs and are determined through an interactive process. Prospective students with disabilities are advised to contact the DSSC as early as possible to ensure timely provision of reasonable accommodations, which might include alternative testing arrangements, tape recording lectures, adaptive equipment, note-takers, interpreters, or specialized computer hardware and software. Services offered by the DSSC are academic advising, registration assistance, diagnostic testing, instructor consultation, and peer tutoring for developmental courses.
