This also applies to disabled registrants/students receiving voluntary assistance from College faculty, staff or another registrant/student.
Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of catalogue information as of the date of publication. However, the College reserves the right to modify or cancel any program, program description, option, course, objective, fee, timetable, or campus location without notice or prejudice.
