Educational Assistance Center

EAC's Mission

The Educational Center (EAC) is committed to providing students with disabilities the opportunity to effectively matriculate into the mainstream of college and community life. We provide services that facilitate equal access to education, self-advocacy, academic self-efficacy, and personal growth opportunities to maximize individual student success. While remaining grounded in developing student independence in the post-secondary learning environment, Oxnard College and the EAC department recognize the campus and community cultural wealth and support systems that students bring to our campus. 
EAC values diversity and promotes awareness and retention by providing quality services and courses for students with disabilities. It is a resource for students and the campus community, providing guidance relating to compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Amendments. Consultation and support to the campus are also provided in 508 compliance, distance education, and Universal Design and campus accessibility.
