College Committment

It is the policy of the Treasure Valley Community College Board of Education and the College that there will be no discrimination or harassment on the grounds of race, color, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, age or disability in any educational programs, activities or employment. Lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in career and technical education programs. Persons having questions about equal opportunity and non-discrimination should contact the Human Resources Director located in the Performing Arts Center on the south side of the Four Rivers Cultural Center building.

The student with a disability is continually challenged to maximize his or her potential. TVCC understands this challenge and is committed to providing the services and the accommodations necessary to make its programs accessible to all qualified students, regardless of a disabling condition.

Special arrangements require collaborative effort, and the student must take a lead role and advocate for themselves. Please follow the links to complete the process of requesting an accommodations plan.  This will ensure you are receiving the services that will benefit your success.
