“While it is the intent that Palo Verde College provides students access to matriculation services, other extended and support services, and course offerings, due to legal constraints, it is possible that some student populations (high school students, inmate students, correspondence education students, etc.) may have limitations that may limit access to typical services and possible limited course offerings”
