ADA Compliance

West Los Angeles College is committed to creating and maintaining a welcoming and inclusive educational and working environment for people of all abilities. West Los Angeles College remains committed to the principles of equal access and opportunity for individuals with disabilities in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act (ADAAA), and applicable sections of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. As such, no qualified individual with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of West Los Angeles College, or be subjected to discrimination. West Los Angeles College requires that a reasonable accommodation be made for participation in and equal access to programs, services, activities, or facilities unless the accommodation would result in undue hardship or threaten the health and safety of West Los Angeles College employees or other participants.

Students and employees with disabilities have the same obligation as all members of the community to meet and maintain the institution’s job performance, academic and technical standards, and codes of conduct.
