Welcome to the Course Substitution and Waivers page. It was developed to assist California Community College practitioners with materials in support of these accommodations. The requirement for course substitution and waivers is established in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, which states:
Modifications may include changes in the length of time permitted for the completion of degree requirements, substitution of specific courses required for the completion of degree requirements, and adaptation of the manner in which specific courses are conducted. Section 504 [34 C.F.R. § 104.44(a)]The material has been divided into four sub-sections, to assist practitioners with finding the resources they need.
