Columbia Basin College provides support services for students with disabilities to ensure that our programs and facilities are accessible, and that students have equal access to educational programs and services. Our campus provides reasonable accommodations to qualified students with disabilities. These services are provided through the Resource Center located in the HUB (H building).
What are your Responsibilities?
You have the right to services and reasonable accommodations based on your documentation.
What Services May be Provided?
Services and reasonable accommodations are available on an individually determined basis based on your documentation and individual needs.
Examples of services:
Faculty and staff may be informed of your need for reasonable accommodation once you qualify for services. Information regarding a student’s disability is considered confidential. Information will not be released without the expressed written permission of the student.
It is always a student's right, and personal choice, to determine if they chose to disclose their disability to the Resource Center. Disclosing your disability can be done at any point in the quarter and does not require that accommodations be used.
Accommodations cannot be given retroactively if a student makes the choice not to disclose their disability to the Resource Center. Alternatively, if a student does disclose their disability but does not request that letters of accommodations be sent to their instructor, accommodations will not be granted.
The Resource Center cannot retroactively give accommodations if a student does not disclose their disability to the Resource Center, or request that letters of accommodation be sent, even in the case that the student feels work submitted or exam scores received do not accurately reflect their abilities.
Students are encouraged to resolve concerns by first contacting the Resource Center. It is in everyone’s best interest that disputes over reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities be settled as quickly and informally as possible. CBC also offers a formal procedure for students who have a complaint or grievance with the institution. This is outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.
Anyone who believes there has been an act of discrimination by the College on the basis of disability against any person or group, may file a complaint with the following agencies:
U.S. Department of Education
Office for Civil Rights
Washington State Human Rights Commission
