Disability Access Services at OSU Corvallis Campus and OSU-Cascades Work in Collaboration with COCC

  • The determination of eligibility for services for students with disabilities will be made by the institution offering the course. The designated institution will have the responsibility for Section 504 and ADA compliance, as well as any associated costs. OSU-CASCADES will incorporate comparable provisions in the OSU-CASCADES partner agreements.
  • COCC will assist OSU-CASCADES and OSU-CASCADES partners to identify means for delivery of service, including but not limited to identification of local individuals to serve as readers, interpreters, and transcribers.
  • When alternative testing is called for as an accommodation for a student enrolled in a course offered by OSU-CASCADES or an OSU-CASCADES partner, COCC shall provide proctoring and administration of the test, and OSU-CASCADES shall reimburse COCC for direct costs.
  • Requests for on-campus ADA specialized transport services will be made by OSU to COCC Campus Services. OSU will require OSU-CASCADES partners to make requests for on-campus ADA specialized transport to OSU. COCC transport drivers will maintain a time sheet to log transport times for OSU-CASCADES students who require ADA specialized transport services. Specialized transport services will be billed to OSU at the rate of $35.00 per hour.
  • OSU will be responsible for ADA accommodation for the public events it sponsors whether they are held on or off the COCC campus and centers. COCC will be responsible for ADA accommodation for the public events it sponsors whether they are held on or off the COCC campus and centers.
