Disability Services

The Disabilities Services Coordinators manage services that assist students with documented disabilities, which might present a barrier to their receiving an education. Special equipment needs and services are accessed through this office. All services are provided at no charge to qualified students.

Southern Regional Technical College strives to provide reasonable, quality services/accommodations based upon the nature of the disability.

The type of service/accommodation provided will not be disruptive and will not fundamentally alter the nature of the program. Services available may include: registration assistance, campus orientation, career exploration, testing accommodations, recording/enlarging reading materials, accessible parking, information and referral to campus and community support services, special equipment, and architectural accessibility. Students are encouraged to request accommodations prior to beginning class.

If you are a student with a documented learning or a physical disability, accommodations may be appropriate and arranged after the steps listed below have been taken. Students must self-identify and request assistance. To get the process underway, this check-list should be helpful. Additionally, students with qualifying disabilities can access free textbooks in alternate formats through the college’s membership to Bookshare.org.

Gather documentation. This may include IEP’s from your high school including an addendum from the school counselor/psychologist within 2 years of graduation, letters (including diagnosis) from a medical doctor or a psychologist, or materials from a private testing agency. The cost of testing is the responsibility of the student.

Complete an initial interview. This will happen during your appointment. It is a time when you will discuss what accommodations you may need, what you have used in the past, and what you found helpful. It is also the time to complete the paperwork that is necessary when you apply for accommodations. Be aware that college accommodations may not be the same accommodations that were received in high school.
