Center for Students With Disabilities

Faculty & Staff Resources

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide access to all college programs and activities for all qualified students. Our goal is to encourage and promote independence in students so that they may achieve their full potential.

Classroom Accessibility

All programs at SMC are accessible; however, some locations on campus are not accessible to students with specific disability related needs. For further information, please refer to the current Schedule of Classes, General Information, Classroom Accessibility Advisory.


The display of a handicap parking placard and a current Santa Monica College parking decal entitles you to park in any student or staff parking space. Accessible shuttle service is available from Satellite campuses. Plan ahead; parking is limited for all.
