Resolving Problems

Occasionally, disagreements or misunderstandings about a student's right to accommodations do occur between students and instructors. If you run into difficulty, please don't hesitate to speak with your counselor or specialist. We will work with you to come up with a plan of action that seems fair to you, without harming your relationship with your instructor.

It is also possible for a student to run into complications with a member of the CSD staff. If you don't feel comfortable speaking with the staff member directly, it is appropriate to contact DSPS Program Director Tina Andersen-Wahlberg in SF 121.

If, after having taken these steps, you still feel you have been unlawfully discriminated against, your next alternative is to speak with the Section 504 coordinator; this is Dr. Paul Schlossman, Vice President of Student Services.

The Procedures for Providing Academic Accommodations for Students with Disabilities are completely outlined in Section AR 5140 of the GCC Board Policies and Administrative Regulations.
