Columbia Basin College has a general “ no pets” policy in all of its buildings, including student housing. However, Service Animals are allowed to accompany their handlers while on campus and in their student housing. Assistance Animals may be requested as an accommodation in student housing through the Resource Center – Disability Services located in T-403.
What is a Service Animal?
If the disability which requires the use of a service animal is not readily apparent, CBC faculty and staff are permitted to ask the following:
A Service Animal does not have to be registered with the Resource Center as an accommodation unless you will be requesting separate accommodations or will be living in Student Housing. We do encourage persons who have a Service Animal to connect with the Resource Center so we can notify security with a description of the animal.
The CBC Assistance Animal policy defines an Assistance Animal as: Assistance animal, also known as an emotional support or companion animal, means an animal that is necessary to provide emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship that alleviates one or more identified symptoms or effects of a person's disability. This includes therapy animals which are owned by a therapist, who uses the animal as a component of therapy for a person with a disability. An assistance animal is not the same as a service animal in that it is not individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability.
How to request an Assistance Animal as an academic accommodation and/or to live with you in Student Housing:
Refer to CBC’s Assistance Animal Policy for more specific information.
