Equal Education Opportunity and Equal Employment Opportunity Policy

No person shall on the basis of race, color, creed or religion, age, sex, national origin, political affiliation, or physical disability status, except where age or physical disabilities are found to be a bona fide occupational qualification, be excluded from employment or participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any program or activity of this institution.

It is the policy of this institution not to discriminate on the basis of sex in the admission requirements, educational programs, activities, or employment policies as required by Title IX in the Educational Amendments of 1972.

In conformance with the provisions of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and other applicable laws and regulations, Coastal Carolina Community College will not discriminate against any student, employee, or applicant for admission or employment because of physical disabilities.

The main campus of Coastal Carolina Community College has been designed with the elimination of physical obstacles so that buildings, restrooms, laboratories, and classrooms are readily accessible to and usable by those with physical disabilities.

Any student or applicant for admission with a disability who wishes to request some accommodation must contact the Admissions Office and ask for the Coastal Carolina Community College Request for Accommodation form.  If accommodation is not requested in advance in order to provide the College sufficient and adequate time to meet the student or applicant’s needs, Coastal cannot guarantee the availability of a reasonable accommodation when it is needed.

Any student or prospective student who believes that discrimination has limited any educational opportunity, or any College employee who believes employment rights have been denied on the basis of discrimination, or any individual who desires information concerning this policy, should contact the following designated responsible employee: Affirmative Action Officer and Title IX Coordinator, Henderson Administration Building, (910) 938-6788.
