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 postsecondary (college) disability laws and accommodations for disability students. It is the student's responsibility to understand these differences, which are explained in the Comparison Chart: Differences between High School and College Accommodations for Students with Disabilities located under the Student Responsibilities webpage. Students may also access this chart by clicking on the following link: http://www.ctcd.edu/locations/central-campus/student-support/student-success-persistence/disability-support-services/student-responsibilities/differences-between-high-school-and-college-accommodations-for-students-with-disabilities/

In addition, DSS strongly encourages students to read the following manuals/guides:
