Disability Services for Students
Tunxis Community College is committed to the full participation of all students in its programs. Students with disabilities who feel they may require specific accommodations are encouraged to contact one of the Learning Disabilities Specialists in the Academic Support Center.
Students With Disabilities
Students with disabilities who feel they may require specific accommodations are encouraged to contact the Learning Disabilities Specialist in the Academic Support Center. Students with documented disabilities are eligible to receive reasonable academic services accommodations.
The process for obtaining a reasonable accommodation is an interactive one that begins with the student’s disclosure of his/her disability and accommodation(s) request to the Learning Disabilities Specialist. The student has the responsibility of providing the College with the appropriate documentation from a qualified physician or clinician who has diagnosed his/her disability. Submitted documentation becomes part of a confidential file and is used in supporting the appropriateness of requested accommodations.
Disability Services is located in the Academic Support Center in the 600 Building, room 6-109.
