Accessibility and Accommodations

The Center for Accessibility Resources (CFAR) provides reasonable accommodations, academic adjustments, and auxiliary aids to ensure that qualified students and guests with disabilities have access to classes, programs, and events at Linn-Benton Community College.

Students are responsible for requesting accommodations in a timely manner. To receive appropriate and timely accommodations from LBCC, give the Center for Accessibility Resources as much advance notice of your disability and specific needs as possible, as certain accommodations, such as sign language interpreting, and some classroom accommodations, take days to weeks to have in place.

College Overview

Each year, more than 22,000 students take at least one class at Linn-Benton Community College, nearly 7,000 attending full time, making LBCC one of the largest community colleges in Oregon. About 30 percent of local high school graduates come directly to LBCC after graduation. The average age of our full-time students is 23.

Established in 1966 as a two-year public college, students attend LBCC for many reasons: to earn an associate’s degree or a transfer degree to a four-year college program; to obtain employment training; to improve existing employment skills; or to enrich their lives through continuing education.

LBCC’s 104-acre Albany campus is located just 10 miles east of Corvallis. Students can access academic support in the Learning Center and Library on campus. The college has a campus bookstore, a small theater, a gym, and recreation areas for student use. Dining facilities include a cafeteria operated by students of the Culinary Arts program, a cafe, and a student-run coffee house.

The Corvallis and Lebanon Campuses offer credit and non-credit classes to students. Classes in Corvallis are taught in two locations: the Benton Center and Chinook Hall. Classes in Lebanon are taught at three locations: the Advanced Technology Transportation Center, the Healthcare Occupations Center, and the Lebanon Center. The LBCC Horse Center houses the Equine Management program just 1.5 miles north of the Albany campus.

Parking at the college is free, with designated spaces to accommodate the needs of people with disabilities. Students are encouraged to obtain a free parking permit from Public Safety. Parking rules and regulations may be found on the LBCC Public Safety website; see Parking Regulations. Your student ID gives you access to free public transportation between LBCC and downtown Albany, Corvallis, Philomath, Lebanon, Sweet Home, and other communities in East Linn County.
