Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome

Mt. San Jacinto Community College District is committed to provide a safe, fair, sensitive and nondiscriminatory environment for study. Toward these ends, the following guidelines will apply:

  • An individual with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), AIDS — related complex (ARC) or a positive Human-Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) antibody test result will not be denied enrollment for instruction in any classroom activity as long as they are able to perform in accordance with established standards.
  • Persons with AIDS or ARC or who are perceived to have such conditions are considered disabled under state and federal law and may be served through state-funded Disabled Students Programs and Services.
  • The administration will develop and implement plans to provide up-to-date AIDS education to students and employees with the purpose of: (1) to prevent further spread of the virus; and, (2) to dispel myths and unreasonable fears about the disease.
