ICT Accessibility Statement

American River College is committed to creating an accessible community – that is, one that provides websites, course materials, documents, and applications that are accessible to all current and future students, faculty, staff, and other constituents.

Our information and communication technologies (ICT) adhere to accessibility standards such as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA, Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Read the complete ICT Accessibility Program.


For students with disabilities, we are committed to providing reasonable academic and administrative accommodations that support our educational programs through our Disability Services and Programs for Students (DSPS) offices. These reasonable academic and administrative accommodations shall not fundamentally alter the educational programs.

DSPS Contact Information

For students at American River College's main campus or any of its centers, call DSPS at (916) 484-8382 or visit the DSPS webpage.
