Students with Disabilities

Feather River College strives to make online course offerings accessible to students with disabilities. Faculty have access to training and are encouraged to design web content that meets the standards of accessibility.

Students with disabilities are encouraged to register with FRC's Disability Support Program and Services, then contact their instructors and request accommodations, such as extra time on an exam.

It's advisable that students with disabilities customize their web browsers take advantage of the accessibility features within web browsers. They should also customize their computers and mobile devices to ensure maximum accessibility. For instance, students can adjust the text size to suit their needs.
