If you are a student with a documented mental, emotional, and/or physical disability, the Student Success Center’s Office of Disability Services is committed to helping you achieve your goals by providing reasonable academic accommodations in and out of the classroom as needed.
We are here to help you recognize your full potential by removing any barriers that may hinder your educational progress.
If you think you may be eligible for academic accommodations, please fill out the attached application, and submit it along with requested documentation (see “Step 2: Documentation”) to Brittany York.
If you are struggling financially, have not been evaluated in the past, and are unable to fulfill documentation requests due to unexpected medical expenses, we may be able to offer monetary assistance. You may apply here.
Please know that your applications and documentation are strictly confidential and will only be shared with the Office of Disability Services. Once eligibility is determined, you’ll be contacted with next steps.
Keep in mind that the application process can take some time; therefore, you are encouraged to submit your application and required documentation two to three weeks prior to beginning classes.
Please refer to the Equal Access and Accommodations Policy for more information.
Current Students & Testing
If you have already established accommodations with TCC, please remember to submit your request for letters to be sent to new instructors each semester. You may find the form here. Please send it to Brittany York if you have not yet done so. Once submitted, you and your instructor will receive a copy.
If your accommodations are testing-related, your instructor will also need to fill out your Test Request Coordination Form (sent at the same time as your letter). This ensures you’ll have a proctor scheduled in the Testing Center for the dates in which you have a test/quiz. I will notify you of your proctor and testing time once received. If you have not heard from me within 10 days of your scheduled test, you should check with your instructor to ensure they’ve submitted the form.
On occasion, tests may be proctored remotely rather than in-person. If you would like to reserve a quiet space to test in these scenarios, you have several options. They are as follows:
- Contact Brittany York to see if a private testing space is available at the college.
- E-mail or call TCH James N. Gamble Library at 513-585-2737 to see if a private room is available to reserve.
- Contact TCC front desk at 513-585-2401 to see if a private space is available.
- Reserve a private space at the Cincinnati Public Library.
Please note: ProctorU does not work with campus’ Wi-Fi due to security measures the hospital has in place. If you have extenuating circumstances (i.e. lack of a safe, quiet space with reliable Internet) that prevent you from testing at home, please reach out to Brittany York to receive information regarding access to an off-site testing location.
