Disability Services

The Disability Services Office at Central Piedmont Community College provides academic accommodations and auxiliary aids/assistive technology to students with a documented disability under the American with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  It is the mission of Disability Services for students with disabilities to have equal access to learning at CPCC.  Believing that students with disabilities can better advocate for their own needs with greater success, we strive to empower students at every step.

Services may include, but are not limited to:

·         Classroom and testing accommodations                                      

·         Sign language interpreting and communication access                        

·         Assistive technology                                                                       

·         Disability Counseling and advocacy

 To learn more about the process of receiving classroom and testing accommodations from Disability Services, please watch our short Student Orientation video.
