Disability Services

Columbia College Hollywood is committed to responding to all eligible student requests for reasonable accommodations that can be provided without undue hardship to the college. If a student makes a disability or special need known to the college, requests accommodations, and provides official documentation to support the need for accommodations, the Student Services Department will determine reasonable modifications or accommodations. This process is an interactive and collaborative process that requires the direct involvement of the Student Services Department staff.

All students are personally financially responsible for outside medical visits, fees, and processes associated with obtaining proper documentation. Columbia College Hollywood cannot assist prospective or current students to obtain outside documentation.

The student must, once approved, request accommodations in each instance that they are needed. For example, the student must provide a purchased copy of a text in order to have it converted to an alternative format. For testing accommodations, the student must provide the Student Services Department with the dates and times of exams and may be required to participate in the arrangements for such accommodations. The college is not responsible for knowing a student’s schedule or arranging accommodations without some form of initiation from the student.

To request disability services or accommodations for special needs, contact the Section 504/ADA Coordinator:
