TCC’s Office of Educational Accessibility arranges appropriate accommodations in accordance with Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amended Act of 1990. All documentation is confidential and is not considered a part of the academic transcript.

How to request accommodations
Counselors on every campus can provide services for students with medical, psychological & learning disabilities. It’s the student’s responsibility to make the college aware of a disability and need for accommodation.
Accommodations are not retroactive and cannot be used by instructors to adjust grades prior to receipt of the accommodation form. Accommodations cannot be provided by instructors without an Accommodation Form signed by the student and the educational accessibility counselor.
