Documentation of a student's disability is required to obtain services. Elevators are located in each building and are open to use by everyone. Access doors for individuals with impairments are located at the front entrances to all buildings. Special parking is designated closest to all buildings and located in the front, the rear or the side of each building. Special chairs and adjustable tables are made available for those with verified needs.
These are important and students are required to request at the beginning of each semester.
Individualized information plans are sent with a student's consent to instructors informing them of any special considerations and services required by the student.
Alternative test accommodations are available when usual testing methods reflect a student's disability rather than the student's level of achievement. Testing accommodations are determined after careful review of the documentation provided by the student and an individual consultation between the student and a staff member. Testing services for exams, quizzes and etc. assist the faculty in providing accommodations that meet the legal mandates of ADA and Section 504.
A complete individual assessment is conducted with each student to determine specific academic support services. The determination of accommodations is based on the professional evaluations and recommendations provided by the student. Information regarding the student is confidential and will only be shared with the appropriate faculty members after an official consent form has been signed.
WSCC DOES NOT provide services that are of a personal nature i.e., pushing wheelchairs, restroom assistance and feeding assistance.
Students with state issued disabilities license plates, or placards must register with Campus Police. Services for Individuals with Disabilities issues only temporary decals, but the student must provide documentation of the need. The fine for parking in areas designated for individuals with disabilities without the valid state parking permit or the WSCC temporary hang tag will be $200.00. This policy will be strictly enforced.
