3.5 Course Substitution for Students with Documented Disabilities

The Governing Board recognizes the need to accommodate students with documented disabilities to the greatest degree possible without compromising the disabled student's course of study or the integrity of any student's degree. The Governing Board authorizes the concept of course substitutions as a means of accommodation under limited circumstances and directs the establishment of an ADA Academic Council to be named by the Chancellor or his/her designee for the purpose of considering course substitutions for students with documented disabilities. Further, the Board directs the Chancellor or his/her designee to develop procedures that address the circumstances under which a disabled student may request a course substitution and the process for requesting same.
