In cooperation with the State Department of Rehabilitation (DOR), Bakersfield College provides job placement for students with disabilities through the WorkAbility III program. A disability may include physical, communication, learning or emotional disability. Assistance with part-time jobs, full-time jobs, internships and work experience placement is provided by WorkAbility III. WorkAbility III also offers job search skills training, including resume writing and interviewing skills. These services are provided to BC students who are also clients of DOR. In addition, DOR may provide financial aid covering the full cost of fees, books and other services.
If a student with a disability believes he/she may qualify for services from DOR, the student can visit the DOR office at 1405 Commercial Way, Suite 120, Bakersfield, or call (661) 395-2525. Students applying for DOR services are urged to report to the Disabled Student Programs and Services Center (First Floor of the Student Services building in the Counseling Suite)
