Tyler Junior College welcomes students with disabilities who have the potential for academic success in the post-secondary educational environment. TJC is committed to providing qualified students with disabilities equal access to its facilities, activities and programs.
Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) require that public colleges and universities provide reasonable and appropriate accommodations for otherwise qualified students with disabilities.
Accommodations may include permission to tape record lectures, relocation of classes or programs to accessible locations, arranging special testing locations, the use of a sign language interpreter, etc. Accommodations are provided on an individual basis following presentation (by the student) and assessment (by the College) of documentation that confirms the presence of a disability that causes a substantial limitation as defined under Section 504 and the ADA.
