Students with Disabilities Handbook

Students with Disabilities

Tyler Junior College welcomes students with disabilities. Prospective students with disabilities are encouraged to visit TJC prior to applying for admission.  You should tour the campus, become acquainted with the facilities, and ask about special assistance that you may need. 

When you have been admitted to TJC, your next step should be to become familiar with policies and procedures contained in official publications of the College.  These include the current Catalog, Class Schedule, Student Handbook and Calendar, and the Handbook for Students with Disabilities. TJC is committed to providing 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 students with disabilities. If you need accommodations to access with the registration process due to a disability, contact the Disability Services office as soon as possible to allow adequate time for scheduling the special services you may need.
