Disability Services

 

The Disability Services office at CPCC provides academic accommodations and auxiliary aids/assistive technology to students with documented disabilities under the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (and Amendments Act of 2008) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  It is the mission of Disability Services to ensure that CPCC students with disabilities have equal access to learning.  Believing that individuals are better able to advocate for their needs with greater success, we strive to empower students with self-advocacy skills 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.

After you watch the video, take the QUIZ to find out what you learned!

If still unsatisfied, the student should then call to make an appointment with the Associate Vice President, Student Success Services, 704-330-6108.  If necessary, the next step would be to follow the Student Grievance Procedure (College Policy 7.09) that can be found by clicking on that hyperlink or in the College Catalog.
