It is the policy of Columbia College Hollywood to prohibit any discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, sexual orientation including gender identity, marital status, civil union status, age, physical or mental disability or military status in regard to the administration of educational programs, admission of students, or other sponsored activities.
A person with a disability is defined by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as an individual who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, has a record of such an impairment, or is regarded as having such an impairment. For persons with disabilities it is important to provide to the College a comprehensive evaluation of a specific disability from an appropriate qualified individual that identifies the type of disability, describes the current level of functioning in an academic or employment setting and lists recommended accommodations. It is important to submit this documentation to the appropriate coordinator or Human Resources contact person in a timely manner. Occasionally, it may be necessary to request additional information from the qualified individual’s to verify the information or accommodations.
The Office of Academic Affairs serves as the central point of contact for information on physical and programmatic access, specific accommodations, resolution of complaints and problems, and identification of available services. In addition, the Office can provide training, consultation, and information regarding disability issues.
If a student makes his or her disability known to the College and requests accommodation, Columbia College will engage in an interactive process with the student and will provide reasonable accommodation that serves the mission of the College as well as the needs of the student.
