1.2.2 Individuals with Disabilities

The Alexandria Technical & Community College complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and is committed to providing for the needs of students with disabilities. Students able to document a disability through a recent assessment will be provided services determined to be necessary and most effective at no cost to the student. Eligibility for services and types of services will be determined on a case-by-case basis. It is the responsibility of the student with disabilities to seek available assistance at the Alexandria Technical & Community College and to make their needs known.

A student in need of accommodations must provide information and documentation several weeks in advance to allow time for the arrangement of appropriate accommodations. In cases where books on tape or an interpreter are required, a minimum of six weeks' advance notice is required. Requests should be directed to the Support Services Coordinator. If a student feels that his her rights have been violated with regard to Section 504 or ADA, he/she should contact the Support Services Coordinator or the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs.
