Student Accessibility Resources

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Student Accessibility Resources (SAR) provides equal access to College programs, services and activities for qualified students with disabilities.

Requests for an accommodation/equal access are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and are determined based on the functional limitations caused by the disability and the supporting documentation provided.

Learning Diagnostician

Tarrant County College (TCC) students who are experiencing ongoing academic difficulties that are interfering with their educational progress may be eligible for a referral to the TCC Learning Diagnostician for a possible learning disability (LD). The Learning Diagnostician is available to assess educational needs and learning styles of currently enrolled TCC students. This individual provides psycho-educational diagnostic information and works cooperatively with Student Accessibility Resources Coordinators to provide the most appropriate academic adjustments for students with learning disabilities. 

Students may receive a referral to be evaluated by the District Learning Diagnostician by contacting the Coordinator of Student Accessibility Resources.

Service Animals on Campus

Individuals with disabilities are permitted to be accompanied by their service animals. Service animals must always be under the control of their owner and must never be left unattended on campus or in automobiles. Students with a service animal on campus may, but are not required to register with Student Accessibility Resources. Emotional support animals are not considered service animals.

For additional information and eligibility requirements regarding SAR, visit Student Accessibility Resources, refer to the SAR Procedures Manual, and/or contact any of the campus SAR offices.

Policy on Disability Discrimination and Accommodation

The College District is committed to full compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which prohibit discrimination against qualified persons with disabilities, as well as other federal and state laws and regulations pertaining to individuals with disabilities.

Under the ADA and its amendments, a person has a disability if they have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity. 

The ADA also protects individuals who have a record of a substantially limiting impairment or who are regarded as disabled by the College District regardless of whether they currently have a disability. A substantial impairment is one that significantly limits or restricts a major life activity such as hearing, seeing, speaking, breathing, performing manual tasks, walking, or caring for oneself.

The Executive Director of Human Resources has been designated as the College District ADA/504 Coordinator responsible for overseeing efforts to comply with these disability laws, including responding to grievances and conducting investigations of any allegation of noncompliance or discrimination based on disability.

Grievances related to disability status and/or accommodations will be addressed using the procedures below. For details relating to disability accommodations in the College District’s resolution process, see below.

Students with Disabilities

The College District is committed to providing qualified students with disabilities with reasonable accommodations and support needed to ensure equal access to the academic programs, facilities, and activities of the College District.

All accommodations are made on an individualized basis. A student requesting any accommodation should first contact the Student Accessibility Resources (SAR) department, who coordinates services for students with disabilities.

The SAR Coordinator reviews documentation provided by the student and, in consultation with the student, determines which accommodations are appropriate for the student’s particular needs and academic program(s).
