Compliance with Regulations

Kentucky Community and Technical College System is an equal educational and employment opportunity institution and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sex/gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, family medical history, or genetic information. Further, we vigilantly prevent discrimination based on sexual orientation, parental status, marital status, political affiliation, military service, or any other non-merit based factor.

Compliance with Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, which prohibits sex discrimination, with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is coordinated by the KCTCS Office of General Counsel, 300 North Main Street, Versailles, KY 40383. Each college has a Title IX Coordinator serving the college community.

Efforts to comply with the laws and regulations applicable to people with disabilities, as required by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (revised 1992) and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, are coordinated through the Office of Disability Services at each KCTCS College.

Questions concerning compliance with college policies and procedures should be directed to the Chief Student Affairs Officer at the college.

The Kentucky Community and Technical System is in compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989. Questions may be directed to the Chief Student Affairs Officer or the Director of Human Resources’ office at each KCTCS College.

Questions about admissions to any KCTCS College should be directed to the appropriate Admissions Office.
