The Accessibility Services Office works to ensure that any students with documented disabilities or certified learning differences receive reasonable accommodations.  This is done in accordance with the policies underlying Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and ADA Amended Acts (ADAAA) of 2010.

Students receive services and accommodations while completing regular course offerings, and all students are held to the same academic standards of the college.

CCM recognizes that students with documented physical, emotional, medical or learning disabilities may require accommodations to meet their learning potential.  The office for Accessibility Services serves to both determine and document what reasonable accommodations may be for the student. Accessibility Services is designed to offer accommodations that provide equal access to college classes and services. Reasonable accommodations may include any or all of the following: classroom or test taking modifications; alternative to print materials; note taking services; adaptive technology or other accommodations as needed.

To qualify for accommodations a student must submit appropriate professional documentation that shows that they have an impairment that limits a major life activity. In order to register, or learn more about services, students may contact the office of Accessibility Services, located in the Learning Resource Center (1st floor) at 973-328-5284 or email disabilityservices@ccm.edu.  For further information you may also visit their webpage.
