Accessibility Resources

The Accessibility Resources Office is dedicated to serving the various needs of individuals with disabilities and is committed to promoting their full participation in college life.

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.

Who is eligible?

Eligibility will be determined on the basis of the presence of a disability and a need for accommodations to support an equal educational opportunity. Students with permanent, chronic or temporary conditions that are disabling are considered eligible to enroll with Accessibility Resources.

What documentation is required?

Documentation of the disability is required and this may include an IEP/504 Plan or a letter from a qualified medical provider that names the disability, describes the functional limitations of that disability, and includes recommendations for accommodations in the college setting.

Will my documentation be held confidential?

All documentation of disability submitted to the Accessibility Resources office will be held in confidence.

When should I request accommodations?

Students who wish to request accommodations should not delay in contacting Accessibility Resources. Timeliness is important because accommodations cannot be given retroactively.

What accommodations are provided?

Accommodations are determined on an individualized basis and may include a quiet testing area, extended time for tests, a reader on exams, ASL, CART, closed captioning, audio recording of lectures, and others. Students must meet with Accessibility Resources staff in order to determine the most appropriate accommodations at the college level.

What support services does Accessibility Resources provide?

Accessibility Resources staff are available to assist students with supportive needs which may include advising, instructional guidance and serving as liaison with college instructors and staff to promote the welfare of students.

How do I request services?

Students or prospective students who would like more information or to request disability related services and accommodations should meet with the Accessibility Resources staff in DVD 114, phone 740-753-7104, or email accessibility@hocking.edu.
