Equal Access at CTC
Through collaboration and support of the entire campus community, Disability Support Services (DSS) provides educational access for students who submit appropriate disability documentation. Students with disabilities are encouraged to visit with a disability support coordinator to discuss documentation requirements and any reasonable accommodation options for your classes.
There are MANY significant differences between secondary (K-12th grade) and post-secondary (college) disability laws and accommodations for disability students. 
In addition, DSS strongly encourages students to read the following manuals/guides: 
*Students are responsible for following all the required procedures for requesting accommodations.
  • Procedures for requesting accommodations can be found under the “Requesting Accommodations” webpage.  
*Students are responsible for reading and adhering to all the policies set forth in the DSS Student Procedures Manual and set forth on the DSS website/webpages.
