Wharton County Junior College is committed to providing a discrimination-free environment for our students with disabilities, in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Students with disabilities are encouraged to inform the college of any assistance they may need upon application for admission. Early self-identification will allow students to receive approved accommodations as quickly as possible.
Disability information is strictly confidential and is not released without consent of the student, nor is this information included in a student's WCJC academic records or academic transcript.Steps to Apply for Accommodations:
- Schedule an ADA Intake and Orientation meeting by contacting the WCJC Coordinator of Disability Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 979-532-6384. It is important to schedule this appointment early, preferably a minimum of one month prior to your first semester of enrollment.
- Review the Documentation Guidelines and collect all required documents. Bring documentation of disability to your Orientation meeting.
- Attend your Orientation meeting to review and submit all required documentation and discuss your accommodations with the WCJC Coordinator of Disability Services.
- Before you leave your Orientation meeting, check to be sure that there is no other documentation required. Ask any questions that you may have, especially if this is your first time meeting with the Coordinator.
- If you are approved for accommodation, an Action Plan will be written up that is specific to you and your needs. You will not be charged any fees for accommodations that are written into your Action Plan.
WCJC students must request that their approved accommodations be continued on a semester-by-semester
basis. A Request for Continuation must be submitted each semester, at least one month
prior to the start of the new term.
For additional information regarding accommodations, or to schedule an appointment, please contact the WCJC Coordinator of Disability Services.
