Wharton County Junior College is committed to providing a discrimination-free environment for its students with disabilities. Students with disabilities are encouraged to inform the college of any assistance they may need upon application. Early self-identification will allow the student to receive whatever accommodation he or she may need as quickly as possible.

Students with disabilities are encouraged to register with the ADA Coordinator, located in the Office of Student Services and to provide appropriate documentation. This action entitles qualified students with dis- abilities to their legal rights and assures them of receiving information on services and procedures available to them. Disability information is strictly confidential and is not released without consent of the student.

It is the responsibility of the student with a disability to voluntarily and confidentially disclose information regarding the nature and extent of the disability. Wharton County Junior College does not assume responsibil- ity for providing special accommodations and services to students who have not identified themselves as having a qualifying disability and who have not made their need known.

Specific disability services are based on individual needs and circumstances. To initiate services, students should contact the ADA Coordinator, prior to each semester. For more information about Title IX and section / Americans with Disabilities Act, please contact:
