Disability Services

WCJC does provide reasonable accommodations for qualified students with a documented disability in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. WCJC is committed to providing a discrimination-free environment for its students with disabilities.

The process for obtaining reasonable accommodations begins with the student's disclosure of his/her disability to the Coordinator of Disability Services.  The student has the responsibility of providing the Office of Disability Services with the appropriate medical and/or psychological documentation from a qualified physician or clinician who has diagnosed the student's disability.  Students with disabilities are to contact the Office of Disability Services directly.  Students with disabilities are to inform the Coordinator of Disability Services prior to the start of their registration for classes at WCJC- preferably 30 to 60 days prior to the start of their initial semester of enrollment. Early self-identification will allow the student to receive reasonable accommodation he or she may be eligible for as quickly as possible.

Continuing WCJC students are to indicate prior to each semester their wish for continuation and submittal of previously approved accommodations to faculty preferably one month prior to each semester enrolled by contacting the Office of Disability Services

Further information about reasonable accommodations in a college setting may be obtained by contacting the Coordinator of Disability Services.
