Counseling Services for TSCT Students
Students with Disabilities who wish to request accommodations are required to disclose to the Counselor/Disabilities Coordinator. It is recommended that students disclose before May 1 to allow time to arrange for accommodations, and to schedule a Transition Interview prior to the start of their first semester. Specific documentation is required to document a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the 2009 Amendment Act. (ADAAA). Documentation must be current, and provide evidence of a disability that affects a major life activity. Further students may be diagnosed with a disability, but must also be “otherwise qualified” for their program of study. Otherwise qualified is defined by ADA as able to perform essential skills with or without accommodations. Therefore, specific accommodations may be cited in provided documentation; but not considered reasonable, as accommodations in college may not alter the pace, content or essential skills required for a course or program of study.
Deadline for Submitting Documentation for COMPASS Placement Assessment and for the following fall is May 1st. Please allow 2 weeks for review and response.
Transition Interviews are scheduled with students after they have been admitted to the college.
Documentation must be provided prior to the interview.

This form is completed at the beginning of each semester by the accessibility coordinator while meeting with the student requesting accommodations. The student then takes a copy of the completed form to his or her current instructors to document what accommodations have been approved. This serves as a formal notification to the instructor, and cites the responsibilities of the student to maintain accommodations. Without this form accommodations may not be available, unless the requested accommodations is something that is offered to an entire class or group.
This document describes the possible accommodations while attending TSCT.
Students with documented disabilities are eligible for reasonable accommodations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Amendment Act (ADAAA).
