If you are in need of academic support because of a documented disability (whether it be psychiatric, learning, mobility, health-related, or sensory) you may be eligible for academic accommodations through Disability Services. As a student with a disability, you have certain rights that are guaranteed to you by law. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 states that, "no otherwise qualified (disabled) individual shall, solely by reason of their (disability), be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."
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.
