Students with Disabilities

In recognition of the talents and needs of students with disabilities and chronic health issues, the Office of Educational Accessibility provides an array of accessibility services designed to enhance your educational experience.

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.

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.

  1. Complete the new student intake form.
  2. Provide documentation of your disability. You can upload your documentation to Accommodate (our accommodations portal) or give a copy to your Educational Accessibility Counselor at your intake meeting.  View the guidelines for documentation of disabilities
  3. Once you complete the new student intake form, check your email and follow the instructions to schedule an appointment  Appointments should be made at least 30 days prior to the first day of classes, when requesting interpreters or alternate formats.
