At San Bernardino Valley College, we are committed to providing students with disabilities
an accessible educational environment that allows each student the opportunity to
reach his/her academic goals and participate in a full range of campus programs and
Once we receive verification of a student's disability, we provide support services
to accommodate for his/her disability-related educational limitations. Such support
services are essential components of the educational program because they help disabled
students realize their educational potential in mainstream academic programs.
