Students With Disabilties and Other Special Needs


Trinity Valley Community College provides equal opportunities for academically qualified students with disabilities and ensures access to a wide variety of resources and programs. The passage of Section 504, Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 requires that the college make certain special arrangements for students with disabilities such as moving classes to accessible locations when necessary, allowing the use of tape recorders, sign language interpreters, or other educational auxiliary aids, making special test arrangements, and other accommodations. The college will make reasonable accommodations for qualified students with a diagnosed physical and/or learning disability who have been admitted to the college and request accommodations.
 
Students with disabilities who wish to request accommodations should notify the Guidance Services Office on their campus. In accordance with federal law, a student requesting accommodations must provide documentation of his/her disability to the Disability Services counselor.
