What does ACCESS do?

Victor Valley College ACCESS extends to individuals with communicative, developmental, learning, psychological, physical, visual, and/or hearing disabilities the opportunity to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills for increased self-actualization and independence. These skills may also be used to gain a college degree or for vocational development leading to employment.

The ACCESS Resource Center has been designed to respond on an individual basis to the needs of Victor Valley College students with disabilities that are eligible for services. The aim is to intervene when a developmental, learning, physical, and/or psychological limitation interferes with the instructional process provided by the College. This allows students an equal opportunity to the same quality education as any other student. With the growing awareness on the part of all people regarding human rights and equal access, all students need to understand that it is ability not disability that counts.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for the program, you must have a disability verified by a physician, psychologist or other appropriate professional. If you have a learning disability, you should bring copies of your test scores. Moreover, if you believe you have a learning disability, but have not been tested, we administer the test at our facilities for community college eligibility purposes only.

Students who may qualify for services include, but are not limited to, Developmentally Delayed Learners, Acquired Brain Injury, Physical, Communication, Learning, Psychological and Other Disabilities.

How to apply to the program
