Disability Services @ PCCC works to ensure that students with documented disabilities receive reasonable accommodations in accordance with the policies underlying Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and ADA Amended Acts (ADA AA) of 2010.

Students receive services and accommodations while completing regular course offerings, and all students are held to the same academic standards of the college.

ODS Daily Drop-in Hours

12 noon – 1:00 pm     Mon - Fri

This is ideal for students who have a quick question or concern, or need immediate attention. ODS will not make other appointments during this hour to ensure availability and access to students.  Students who are aware they need longer than 15-20 minutes will still need to make an appointment.

Accommodations - PCCC recognizes that students with documented physical, emotional, medical or learning disabilities may require accommodations to meet their learning potential.

Disability Services serves to both determine and document what reasonable accommodations may be for the student.

Disability Services is designed to offer accommodations that provide equal access to college classes and services.

Reasonable accommodations include, but are not limited to:

  • alternate testing arrangements
  • books in alternate format
  • peer note-takers
  • adaptive/assistive technology
  • assistance in arranging for sign language interpreters.

To qualify for accommodations: a student must submit appropriate professional documentation that he or she has an impairment that limits a major life activity.
