Americans with Disabilities Act

It is the policy of Riverside College of Health Careers to maintain and promote equal educational opportunity without regard to race; age (except where age is a bona fide clinical requirement); color ; gender or sexual orientation; cultural, ethnic or national origin; religion; marital status; military or veteran status; disability; physical or mental condition(s), as long as the condition(s) do not limit the applicant/student's ability to perform the Essential Program Requirements with or without reasonable accommodations as outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Title III Public Accommodations, ADA Amendments Act of 2008, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504; or any other factor prohibited by law in its educational programs or activities.

RCHC 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.
