Service Animals on Campus
Students and employees with a disability* who need a service animal may use a service animal (including a service animal in training) on district and college property. Therapy animals and pets are not allowed.
*Disability must be consistent with guidelines set forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).
Service Animal Guidelines
Service animals are subject to the following guidelines:
- A service animal is any dog or a miniature horse that is trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability.
- Faculty, staff or student owners of service animals that wish to bring the animal to campus, are requested, but not required, to register their service animal with the Vice President of Student Services or Vice President of Administrative Services. Registration provides a quick way to demonstrate the service animal is properly on campus.
- If owner applies for registration, owner must provide documentation of their service animal’s current shot/vaccination records at the time of registration. Visitors should check in with the Vice President’s offices.
- If owner applies for registration, owner must provide documentation of appropriate licenses.
- If owner applies for registration, owner should carry proof of service animal registration when accompanied by that service animal on campus.
- The service animal must be in good health, and free of fleas and external parasites.
- The service animal must be on a leash at all times.
- Owner is responsible for all cleanup of animal feces.
- Service animals that disrupt the learning environment and the ability of others to learn may be excluded from campus.
- Service animals that are ill, unclean, noisy, or bedraggled will not be allowed on campus.
- Service animals that show unprovoked aggressive tendencies or are deemed potentially dangerous will not be allowed on campus.
- Service animals are not permitted to be in the following areas: mechanical rooms/custodial closets, any room where protective gear is worn, or any room that poses a potential danger to the animal.
- Owner will be financially responsible for any damage or cleaning costs resulting from the animal being brought on to campus. Animals that cause damage may be excluded from the campus.
Individuals who bring a service animal to campus must extend courtesy and respect to colleagues, students, and visitors in the area. Owners are required to keep service animals on a leash and should consider safety, health, and the possible fears others may have in the presence of animals.
