Disability Services



Students with disabilities are and have always been an important part of our student body. Although the college does not offer a specialized curriculum, personnel at the college work with students to modify campus facilities and programs to meet individual needs. The Director of the Student Support works closely with staff to ensure that students with disabilities receive the same academic opportunities as other students.

Interested students are encouraged to contact the office by email at: or by phone at 503-375-7012. Early planning is also encouraged to allow our staff adequate time to make the necessary arrangements for support services.

If you will be requesting accommodations due to a disability it will be necessary to provide documentation verifying the disability. The disability assessment must have been completed within the last three years.
