CI Statement of Nondiscrimination and Disability Services Information

California State University Channel Islands prohibits discrimination or harassment based on sex, gender, race, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, cancer-related medical condition, or genetic predisposition. The University also prohibits discrimination against anyone due to a relationship or association with an individual with a known disability.

The University practices equal opportunity in admission to, access to, and operation of instruction, programs, services, and activities. Also, the University provides equally effective communication.

The University considers reasonable accommodation for these purposes: (a) completion of the admission and enrollment processes; (b) participation in instruction, programs, services and activities; and (c) equally effective communication, upon request by persons with legally protected disabilities.

Questions, concerns, complaints, and requests for reasonable accommodation or additional information may be forwarded to Disability Resource Programs at (805) 437-3331 (voice and TDD).

DRP General Service Policy

Disability Resource Programs (DRP) plays a vital role in all aspects related to educational access for students with disabilities. Students with verified disabilities have the right, and are encouraged, to participate in the services coordinated by DRP. Faculty may also consult with DRP to confirm the legitimacy of a request for accommodation. When students choose to register for services with DRP, they are required to abide by DRP’s policies and procedures. Only those students who identify themselves to the University and present appropriate written documentation of a disability are eligible for academic accommodation.

Students who request accommodations are advised to submit documentation to the disabilities counselor prior to the beginning of the semester so that arrangements can be made to meet individual needs. Also, students must return to DRP at the beginning of each new semester, so appropriate accommodations may continue or new accommodations may be arranged.

The decision of a student not to self-identify does not constitute a permanent renouncement of the right to University-administered accommodations. However, if a student chooses not to self-identify and/or request accommodation, the University does not assume responsibility for any disability-related problem(s) that may arise.
