Office of Special Services
Empowering students to achieve their goals
Program’s Mission Statement:
The Office of Special Services' (OSS) mission is to facilitate equal access for students with disabilities, allowing full participation in educational programs, services, and campus activities through appropriate and reasonable accommodations.
OSS facilitates equal access for LACC students with disabilities to participate in educational programs, services, and campus activities through appropriate and reasonable accommodations. We provide many support services like note taking assistance, interpretive services, test taking assistance, alternative media, and more. Accommodations and support services are determined on a case-by-case basis by an OSS professional in conjunction with the student, verified documentation, identified educational limitations, and the degree or extent of functional limitations associated with the student’s disability.
Student Learning Outcomes:
The student will:
- Utilize assistive technology, with increasing, effectiveness, in the college's courses.
- Self-advocate, with the campus at large, for their individually identified academic adjustments and accommodations.
- Work with OSS Counselors and Specialists to develop, maintain, and follow a personal educational plan/contract to complete educational and career goals.
