Counseling, Health and Disability Access Services
Davidson County Community College realizes that students with a disability or medical condition may need services and/or accommodations to participate in the academic programs at DCCC. If a student with a disability wishes to receive an accommodation, it is the responsibility of the student to disclose their disability to the Office of Disability Services and request an accommodation by completing the Disability Services Request Form. Students may elect to disclose a disability at any time, but we encourage students to contact the Office of Disability Services as soon as possible to ensure timely and appropriate accommodations.
The Office of Disability Services provides support services in curriculum, continuing education and pre-college courses.
The Office of Disability Services facilitates equal access and opportunity for students with disabilities and serves as a resource for faculty and staff as they work with students who have disabilities. This mission is fulfilled by honoring the uniqueness of each student, assisting students in gaining access to resources and services they require in order to have the opportunity to be successful, and aiding students to develop and practice self-advocacy skills. It is also fulfilled by consulting with our faculty and staff to provide support, as needed, to enhance their work with students who are differentially abled.
