Americans with Disabilities Act
Riverside School of Health Careers (RSHC) adheres to the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Title III Public Accommodations, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504. No qualified individual with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in, or be denied the benefits of this institution’s classes or facilities. RSHC will make reasonable modifications in policies, practices, procedures, and/or facilities when such accommodations are deemed necessary. Academic Services has been designated to coordinate compliance with the nondiscrimination requirements contained in Subtitle A of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). It is the student’s responsibility to contact the RSHC Disabilities Officer at (757) 240-2200 to arrange for any necessary accommodations. The student is also responsible to inform faculty of their accommodation needs in a timely manner in order to arrange for necessary accommodations while at RSHC. If there are additional questions or concerns about accommodation arrangements the student has the responsibility to contact the RSHC Disabilities Officer. The campus is handicap accessible.
RSHC does not knowingly practice discrimination in the recruitment, admission, progression, graduation, and withdrawal process/policies or in any other activity affecting students. Discrimination complaints can be filed with the Office for Civil Rights (OCR). However, prior to filing a complaint with OCR against an institution, a potential complainant should use the institution’s grievance process to have the complaint resolved. However, a complainant is not required by law to use the institutional grievance process before filing a complaint with OCR. If a complainant uses an institutional grievance process and also chooses to file the complaint with OCR, the complaint must be filed with OCR within 60 days after completion of the institutional grievance process.
