TVCC is committed to giving students with disabilities equal access and opportunities to participate in the college’s educational programs, activities, and facilities. The passage of Section 504, Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as amended, requires that the college make certain special arrangements for students with disabilities. This does not mean that less should be required of the student with a disability than of others, but only that reasonable accommodations should be made to ensure that students with a disability have equal access to an education.
Accommodations are provided on each of our campuses at no cost to any qualified student who has a documented physical and/or learning disability and requests services.
A Request for Accommodations form must be completed prior to the beginning of each semester. This form can be found on the home page of the Student Access and Accommodation website. Appropriate documentation of physical or psycho/educational evaluation or Rehabilitation Agency referral must be submitted before any accommodation can be arranged. This evaluation and/or referral must clearly document the disability and support the need for accommodation. Requests and documentation may be subject to review by the ADA Compliance Committee.
There is no deadline to request accommodations, but they are not retroactive.
