Disabled Students Program and Services (DSP&S)   http://www.cccco.edu/divisions/ss/disabled/dsps.htm  Site Reviews(0)
The DSP&S program provides support services, specialized instruction, and educational accommodations to students with disabilities so that they can participate as fully and benefit as equitably from the college experience as their non-disabled peers. A Student Educational Contract (SEC) is developed for each student which links student´s goals, curriculum program, and academic accommodations to his/her specific disability related educational limitation. Eligibility Criteria: The specific disability must be verified, and there must be an educational limitation that precludes the student from fully participating in general education without additional specialized services. Services: Examples of services available through DSPS that are over and above those regularly offered by the college would be test-taking facilitation, assessment for learning disabilities, specialized counseling, interpreter services for hearing-impaired or deaf students, mobility assistance, note taker services, reader services, speech services, transcription services, transportation, specialized tutoring, access to adaptive equipment, job development/placement, registration assistance, special parking and specialized instruction.

Michael Skolnik Recently, the question of degree granting for the CAATs has been receiving a lot of attention, and many academic leaders in the colleges have been urging that the CAATs be empowered to award certain types of degrees.

Then it describes the types of degrees which have been proposed for the CAATs and their status in some of the jurisdictions where they are awarded. Lastly, it analyzes the arguments which have been advanced in support of the proposal in the context of the present relationship between the CAATs and the provincial universities and offers some conclusions

The Post-secondary Education Choice and Excellence Act, 2000 The Post-secondary Education Choice and Excellence Act, 2000, requires organizations wishing to advertise and/or offer a program or part of a program leading to a degree, or to be known as a university, to have either the consent of the Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities or an Act of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. The Act establishes the composition and authority of the Postsecondary Education Quality Assessment Board (PEQAB). PEQAB is responsible for reviewing applications for consent and making recommendations to the Minister on the quality of programs and organizational soundness. Regulations (279/02, 280/02, 281/02) made under the Act define public and private organizations for the purposes of the Act, financial protection of student tuition and transcripts, and the procedures for ministerial decisions, orders and appeals concerning amendments to consents, suspensions, revocations, cancellations, and reinstatements. The Minister's Guidelines for Applying for a Ministerial Consent summarize the Act and the application requirements, and provide information on other matters pertaining to the Act. The Act, regulations, and the Minister's Guidelines for Applying for a Ministerial Consent should be consulted prior to making an application for consent. Questions should be addressed to the Universities Branch of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities at 416-325-1953.
