To receive a reasonable accommodation you, the student, must first request the accommodation and provide documentation of the disability. The Access Center is the designated office to certify eligibility for disability services, determine accommodations, and maintain documentation separate from other college records. In general, Century College will not act on its own to provide an accommodation to a student unless or until one is requested.

The Access Center will generally require documentation of the disability by the appropriate licensed professional in order to evaluate a request for a reasonable accommodation. Documentation should reflect the nature of the disability and how it affects you in an academic setting. The law allows the College to request recent documentation. If the disability has changed or fluctuates in intensity, then an up-to-date evaluation of the condition may be requested to determine reasonable accommodations.



At Century College, you are responsible for notifying the Access Center if the accommodations that have been provided do not meet your needs. If you have attempted to resolve issues related to your accommodations but you feel that Century College has failed to meet your needs, you may file a complaint. Complaints generally are about issues such as:

  • accommodations provided
  • 及时实施住宿
  • 进入建筑物
  • 访问信息

Complaints are treated seriously at Century College and it has processes in place to investigate and help resolve them. Complaints should be filed in a timely manner and are usually, but do not need to be, submitted in written form.

The complaint process is as follows:

  1. 讨论您对访问中心的董事的投诉,以试图解决问题。
  2. If the complaint cannot be resolved, a grievance can be filed by following the Student Complaint and Grievance Policy and Procedure,, which begins with either of the following:

1B. Student ADA Access Complaint Procedure(Minnesota State Procedure)




All films and videos acquired after 12/30/94 must have either open or closed captioning. Any films and videos purchased on or before 12/30/94 that are not captioned may be used, but will be captioned on request or as a requested reasonable accommodation.



Meeting/Program/Event Accessibility



All departments shall inform potential participants in the above activities of the availability of accommodations by including the following statement on bulletins, flyers, brochures, letters, PSA's, or any other material used to inform participants of the event:


All departments that develop, use and/or purchase written materials for distribution to the public will ensure that each document contains a statement indicating that alternative formats will be provided upon request.

Interpreters are professionals who facilitate communication between hearing individuals and people who are deaf or hard of hearing. The role of the interpreter is similar to that of a foreign language translator, which is to bridge the communication gap between two parties.

High School Students


高等教育招生计划(PSE的选项O) is the name of a law that enables high school students who are at least juniors to take college or university courses. Sometimes these courses are offered in the high school and sometimes students attend regular college or university courses. Credits can be applied toward high school graduation and can be applied to a college or university degree. The State of Minnesota pays the tuition and most fees. To be eligible to attend, students must meet admissions requirements for PSEO students. Some schools have special programs with other names such as "transitions" or "concurrent enrollment", but they are all set up by law to "promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wider variety or options to high school pupils."



大学生活给studen带来不同的挑战ts with disabilities. When students enroll at Century College, they are considered responsible adults by faculty and staff. The expectations are that they will assume responsibilities for meeting their class requirements.

How is college different from high school?





  • 认识到您的儿子或儿女的残疾将通过与他们的非残疾人同行相同的经历。
  • 更高等教育的准备需要在你儿子或女儿的高中岁月开始。询问高中工作人员有关适当的职业专业选择,如技术学院,社区学院或大学等信息。
  • Explore the benefits of extending the high school graduation date to take advantage of transition programs.
  • 与您的儿子或女儿的高中教师和支持人员以及社区机构合作,以确定将为大学的儿子或女儿做好准备的过渡活动。
  • Contact the admissions office of several colleges or universities. Ask to speak with the service provider for students with disabilities. Talk with the service provider about the admissions process for students with disabilities, how students must document their disability, and what services the college or university offers to students with disabilities.
  • Ensure that your son or daughter will have the necessary recent testing that a college needs to document a disability. This includes but is not limited to learning disabilities. This testing can be done during the senior year of high school but schedule it early. Have these reports and copies of your son or daughter's most recent disability assessment, IEP (Individualized Education Plan), and transition plan available for college or university staff.
  • 鼓励您的儿子或女儿联系康复服务以确定服务的资格。康复服务可以帮助残疾学生的财务和设备支持。
  • 如果您的儿子或女儿的大学或大学需要发布招生测试结果,请学习要求测试住宿的过程。如果您的儿子或女儿需要测试住宿,则必须记录需要。
  • Ensure that your son or daughter learns to use reasonable and appropriate accommodations. These accommodations are determined based on documented need and may include but are not limited to test taking, note taking, reading texts, and using adaptive technology.
  • Remember your son or daughter has the responsibility to notify the college or university that she or he has a disability identifying his/her needs and provide appropriate documentation of those needs. The college has the responsibility to provide reasonable accommodation based on documentation of the disability.

How can I help my son or daughter have a successful college or university experience?

As first-year students arrive at a college or university and begin to venture forth they experience different reactions and thoughts. Some students will adjust to life with little difficulty, while others may find that the transition stretches beyond the first year. Parents can help by understanding the developmental process that their students will journey through as they enter a college or university and recognize that this process is part of the higher education learning environment.

  1. 抵达后,许多学生享受新的新性和兴奋导致对大学生活的强烈积极情绪。
  2. A few weeks into the semester, students begin to realize that higher education is not all glamour and fun - there is hard work, and there can be frustration and disappointment as well. Students may receive their first low grades.
  3. 关于mid-semester, students may begin wondering if college life is better at another school. They might believe that transferring to another institution will solve the problems they are experiencing. Or they may wonder if they would be better off out in the work world.
  4. 学生们begin to learn that things at home have changed. Life has gone on without them. Alternatively, first year students learn that they have changed, and because of this, their relationships with family and high school friends may be different from what they remember.
  5. 随着学生通过学期的进步,他们通过他们改进学术和学习技巧,将他们的第一个深入谈话与同学进行,享受扩大他们的朋友圈。这是在此时,真正的智力履行与同学和教师发展开始和有意义的关系。
  6. 随着学期结束,学生面临大量工作。无论学生如何在学者和社会上做出学习,他们都可能担心他们是否会在论文和考试中幸存,以及他们实际上将其归还第二学期。他们可能会讨论他们是否真的属于大学。
  7. Sometime during the second semester, students begin to view college as a total experience. They come to see the classes, casual discussions with new friends, parties, and other elements of their college life are related and part of an interrelated whole. First year students come to understand that the choices and commitment that they make have a tremendous impact on the shape of their college experience and future.


In general, under federal and state privacy laws, students at colleges or universities have the legal right to control access to information about themselves. Some information called "directory data" is public and available to anyone, even parents. Almost all other information such as grades or class schedules is private and, in most cases, a student's written authorization is required to release to a third party private information held by a college or university.

Parents are legally considered to be "third parties" and need their child's written permission to access private data about them.
