Information Regarding Accomodations
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that reasonable accommodations be provided for students with physical, cognitive, systemic, learning, and psychiatric disabilities.
In order to receive accommodations in the classroom, students must first provide documentation of disabilities to the Director of the Learning Assistance Lab in order to obtain an accommodation form. Then students should contact the instructor of each course at the beginning of the semester to discuss any accommodations for the course.
If you have any further questions regarding accomodations or disabilities services, please contact us at:

The Widow's Mite (Make the Most of your BC Experience)
The Widow's Mite
Sacred tithing funds pay for over half of your tuition. While studying at a CES institution it is crucial to remember the faithful members who support you in your education, many of which may never set foot on a church school campus. President Hinckley referring to a widowed member in the Philippines paying her tithing said:
"You will violate a sacred trust with the widow woman I mentioned, and with all of us, if you fail to take advantage of the great opportunity that is yours here to learn in order that you might go forth to serve...."
Watch this video produced by the church and ponder what it means to be given such an incredible opportunity to study at LDS Business College.
