Access Services facilitates services for students with different types of disabilities including autism, physical, visual, hearing, psychological disabilities and learning disorders.
- Students without regular high school diplomas are eligible for CF’s Postsecondary Adult Vocational Certificate programs, except health care and law enforcement related programs. Most vocational programs require the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE). If a potential student is registered with Access Services and has submitted the appropriate documentation of disability, test accommodations may be available.
- Remediation options are available at CF to help all vocational students raise their TABE scores before graduation. If all aspects of a program are successfully completed, but the TABE scores are not attained, and the documented reason is directly disability-related, Access Services may be able to exempt a student so that he or she may graduate with the vocational certificate. This is determined on a case-by-case basis.
- As mandated by federal policy, students without a regular high school diploma or GED are not eligible for federal financial aid.
Students with disabilities should explore options with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation to determine if they are eligible for DVR services.
