Accessibility Services

We provide opportunities for students with disabilities and enable them to take part in and enjoy the benefits of higher education.

Reasonable Accommodation

Here is the Idaho Division of Human Resources Executive Branch Statewide Policy, Section 14: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Reasonable Accommodation.

Section 14: Americans with Disabilities Act

Lewis-Clark State College enhances and promotes the free exchange of ideas in an environment that celebrates the dignity, worth and contribution of all ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. LC State is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and has a strong commitment to the principle of diversity. Please see our Statement of Nondiscrimination (link to policy) regarding our policy on the basis of race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability, veteran status, or sexual orientation.

It is the responsibility of the individual with a disability to self-identify to the Accessibility Services Office and to provide documentation.

When the individual and the Accessibility Services staff meet, they will discuss the appropriate and reasonable accommodations that may benefit the individual in the classroom, testing, the campus community, or other areas. Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis considering an individual's limitations and the academic demands and responsibilities of residential life at Lewis-Clark State College.

It is the disabled individual’s responsibility to begin the reasonable accommodation discussion, and the College’s responsibility to engage in a good-faith interaction with the individual, so that both parties can cooperate to develop a reasonable accommodation.  Visit the LC State's Nondiscrimination web page for more information.

Students who believe they were not accommodated appropriately on campus or in their course (online or face-to-face) may begin the process of filing a grievance by contacting the Accessibility Services office, as outlined on the Grievance Procedures web page.

All events that take place on campus must meet accessibility standards in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Please review the Campus Activity and Event Accessibility Policy  for more information.
