County College of Morris (CCM) generally limits the presence of privately owned animals on campus. However, the college permits Service Animals on campus when they are doing work or performing tasks required by a disabled student, employee or visitor.
Service Animals allowed on campus are as defined in the regulations implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The work or task that a Service Animal has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Animals whose sole function is to provide emotional support, comfort, therapy, companionship, therapeutic benefits or to promote emotional well being do not qualify as Service Animals under the ADA regulations.
Service Animals are not required to be registered with the Office of Accessibility Services. However, the animal must display the proper licensing tags for the town in which the animal’s owner resides.The Service Animal must be leashed and under the control of the handler/partner at all times except when the Service Animal is performing a specific duty that requires it to be unleashed.

For reasons of health and safety, unless specifically authorized, domestic pets may not be brought on campus or allowed within a college building. Anyone bringing animals, other than Service Animals, on campus or into buildings will be subject to disciplinary action. Animal Control will remove animals left unattended inside of automobiles.
