Accessibility Center

About the Accessibility Center

The Accessibility Center (AC) serves the Community College of Denver's students with disabilities. Our mission is to provide leadership and facilitate equal access to institutional opportunities for students with disabilities to develop independence, self-advocacy skills, learn, and achieve personal and professional success.

The AC assists with determining reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities following the Americans with Disabilities Act as amended in 2008 and Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Students with documented disabilities who need reasonable accommodations for their courses should apply for services at the AC (Confluence Building 121), email CCD.Access@hmionline.net, or call the office at 303-556-3300.
