TJC welcomes students with disabilities with the potential for academic success in post-secondary education. TJC is committed to providing qualified students with disabilities equal access to its facilities, activities and programs.
As amended, section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 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, using a sign language interpreter, etc. Accommodations are provided individually following presentation (by the student) and assessment (by the College) of documentation confirming the presence of a disability that causes a substantial limitation as defined under Section 504 and the ADA.
To request accommodations, please log on to Apache Access, choose the "Campus Life" tab from the menu, and click on the "Request Accommodations" link in the Support Services panel.
