HILL COLLEGE

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY

Hill College is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in education and employment.  The college does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, genetic information, or veteran status in the administration of its educational programs, activities, or employment policies.

DISABILITY AND NONDISCRIMINATION

Federal law prohibits the college from making preadmission inquiries regarding a student's disability.  Information regarding a student's disability, voluntarily given or inadvertently received, will not adversely affect any admission decision.  If a student requires special services and/or accommodations as a result of a disability, the student must notify the Office of Student Services.  This voluntary self identification allows Hill College to prepare appropriate support services and/or accommodations to facilitate the student's learning.  Confidentiality of the information will be maintained in accordance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act and shared only with College officials with a legitimate educational interest in the information.  To the extent reasonably appropriate, the college will provide special services and/or accommodations to qualified individuals with a disability in accordance with Section 504 the Rehabilitation Act.  Hill College has designated the Executive Director of Human Resources & Institutional Development as the Section 504 Coordinator.  Students should contact the Academic Advising and Success Center to request an accommodation.

 

The College District prohibits discrimination, including harassment, against any student on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, disability, or any other basis prohibited by law.  Retaliation against anyone involved in the complaint process is a violation of College District policy and is prohibited.

Also, Hill College complies with state regulations that allow no illegal drugs on campus.  Students caught with such a drug may be suspended and/or expelled from college for a specified period of time.
