This complete policy can be found at valenciacollege.edu/generalcounsel/policies.cfm.

The Board of Trustees of Valencia College, in accordance with State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.041, has established policies and procedures for reasonable substitutions of admission and graduation requirements for eligible students. Students seeking substitution must provide appropriate documentation of a disability from a qualified professional that verifies the existence of and the extent to which the disability affects the student's ability to function in a postsecondary academic environment. The requested substitution must not fundamentally alter essential requirements of the student's academic program. In order to request a course substitution, students will need to meet with an Advisor in the Office for Students with Disabilities. Upon determination of eligibility, the Advisor will provide the course substitution packet and assist the student through the process. The final decision regarding the substitution request is determined by the Collegewide Course Substitution Committee.
