Looking to establish accommodations while attending LCC?
Start by reviewing our Prospective Student Information and Application Process. Once you are ready, complete the CAR Online Student Application and upload any supporting documentation or a disability verification form. Once received, we will contact you to schedule a remote Intake Appointment with a CAR Accommodation Specialist.
Are you a current or returning CAR student?
Remember to access your AIM portal to request your Letters of Accommodation each term, ideally before the end of the first week of class. Meet with your Accommodation Specialist at least once per year to review your current eligibility, discuss additional support, services, or strategies. Term check-in appointments are also welcomed and encouraged! Schedule an appointment with CAR.

Nancy Hart Memorial Bench
Join the Center for Accessible Resources (CAR) staff in taking a rest on the Nancy Hart Memorial Bench. Nancy was Associate Dean of Disability Resources from June 1993-September 2014. She served CAR students and staff with grace and care, was a leader in the state and national disability organization, and much more. The bench is located outside of Building 1 next to the bus station. Please join us in honoring Nancy’s memory.
Notice to Center for Accessible Resource (CAR) Staff and Students
Lane Community College is renewing its commitment to comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and of the 1990 Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act. The College’s commitment is to make determinations regarding a student’s eligibility for academic adjustments and auxiliary aids in a timely manner and to promptly notify a student if it is determined that additional documentation is needed to support the student’s request for an accommodation or auxiliary aid.
College procedures have been revised to include Eligibility Letters sent to students after determination of their accommodations within ten (10) business days of a student’s meeting with an Accommodation Specialist. That letter will outline the accommodations for which the student is eligible, the resources identified, and any accommodations that were denied.
The CAR website now includes these revised procedures. You should feel free to review the revised procedures.
For more information regarding Section 504 and Title II, I encourage you to visit the web sites maintained
