GCC Provides Assistance To Students With Disabilities
Category: Kuwait Local News


GCC does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, religion, creed, national origin, sex, marital status, sexual preference, veteran status, or disability in its educational programs, activities, admissions, and employment.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 prohibits discrimination on the basis of a disability and mandates that equal access and reasonable accommodations be provided to qualified individuals with disabilities.

Under the ADA any person with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of his/her major life functions is defined as disabled. Students with disabilities may not be segregated and are fully included in the institution's existing programs and activities.

GCC provides assistance to students with disabilities, assists faculty and staff members who interact with the students and work closely with community agencies. It is the student's responsibility to identify his/her need for services and provide the appropriate documents.

The information the student provides will be confidential. With the student's permission, only specific recommendations will be released to faculty. Please note that the college does not provide personal aids or attendants.

Services and reasonable accommodations are granted to students who complete the Application for Disability Support Services and submit complete written documentation of the disability from an appropriate and qualified source.
