Mission

The mission of Blue Ridge Community College Disability Services is to provide reasonable accommodations and support for students with disabilities intended to facilitate equal access to postsecondary programs, courses, and college-sponsored events.

Who is eligible for our services?

According to The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act, a student with a disability is someone who has a physical or mental impairment; has a history of impairment; or is believed to have a disability that substantially limits a major life activity such as learning, speaking, seeing, hearing, breathing, walking, caring for one’s self, or performing manual tasks. Documentation of a diagnosed disability is required for eligibility to services.

I may have a disability but I have not been diagnosed, how can I get evaluated?
