Access Center

The Access Center Office of Disability Services (ACODS) is dedicated to serving the various needs of individuals with disabilities and is committed to promoting their full participation in college life. Access Center services are provided for students with permanent, chronic or temporary conditions.

In conformance with the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), Hocking College will make reasonable modifications to its practices and will provide certain individualized services and accommodations as needed to assure nondiscrimination on the basis of disability. Students or applicants for admission who would like to request disability-related services and accommodations are encouraged to meet with the Access Center staff.

Qualifying for Services

As part of the application process, students or prospective students are required to provide documentation of the disability from an outside institution or profession, such as an educational facility, psychologist, family physician, mental health clinic, Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation or workers' compensation.


Students requesting services should contact the Access Center before registering for classes. Since services are arranged on a first-come, first-served basis, unfortunate delays may result when request for services are untimely. Establishing reasonable accommodations must be done on a case-by-case basis. Not only will the strengths and needs of each individual vary, but also the specific demands of the context, discipline, class format, evaluation methods and curricular goals of each course.

Services Offered Include the Following:

  • Professional tutoring in the basic courses of reading, writing, math and Microsoft Office
  • Testing accommodations such as oral testing, quiet testing room, extended time tests and scribed tests
  • Referral to appropriate internal agencies, such as Peer Tutoring program, The Learning Connection, Athens County Retention Program, Math PACE Lab, Communications PACE Lab, Reading Lab, and Counseling Center.
  • Advising and/or counseling with priority scheduling to ensure classes and times meet the needs of students
  • Acting as a liaison with community agencies and professionals who service the student with disabilities to ensure comprehensive services
