Access Services

Illinois Central College offers support services to students with varying disabilities.


The Office for Access Services will work with students and textbook publishers to obtain textbook information in an alternate format. Obtaining alternate formats can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months; therefore, it is imperative that students register with Access Services as early as possible.

Students not adhering to copyright laws will be ineligible for future alternative format materials until all materials are returned and the issue is resolved.

Orientation and Mobility Training

Access Services will work with students to become familiar with the campus and provide orientation and mobility training for blind and low vision students. We ask students to register early and begin orientation and mobility training one semester prior to the start of classes.

Interpreting Services

Access Services can provide interpreting services for events, meetings or other campus activities. We ask students to give at least four weeks notice before a course begins.

Testing Accommodations

Access services provide testing accommodations for students. Students need to submit an Instructor Correspondence which needs to be submitted to each instructor and discussed before testing. For tests taken with a reader, or in the Testing Center, it is the students responsibility to make arrangements for testing at least 2 days before the test is taken.

Accessible Parking

All federal and state laws apply to use of parking placards/plates for individuals with disabilities. Accessible parking places are for the exclusive use of individuals with a disability.

East Peoria Campus

In the event that parking spaces are not available due to high usage, vehicles with the appropriate parking placard/plates may park in empty parking places in the visitor’s parking lot.

Peoria Campus

The Peoria Campus has accessible parking throughout its various lots.

Misuse of accessible parking permits can result in fines and cancelation by the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office of the parking placard. Illinois Central College’s Campus Police may be contacted for more information on accessible parking at (309) 694-5223.

Nursing Services/Personal Assistance

Students needing the use of their personal assistant or nurse during classes for disability-related reasons (IE: health, safety, or welfare) should meet with the Coordinator of Access Services to obtain an accommodation letter to take to instructors to explain the presence of the assistant/nurse. The college does not employ personal assistants/nurses for students.
