Disability Services

Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) is part of the Counseling and Career Development department. SSD assists any student with a documented disability beginning with admission and continuing through college.

 

TTC counselors provide individualized services, workshops and academic support. These services are available from our Counseling and Career Development office on Thornley Campus and from the Student Success Centers on the Palmer, Berkeley and Mount Pleasant campuses.

Services may include:

  • Accessible computers and software
  • Accessible table and chairs
  • Large-print materials
  • Note-takers
  • Reader/scribe services
  • Sign language interpreters
  • Test-taking accommodations
  • Textbooks on CD

Entrances to all college facilities are barrier free and accessible. Handicap parking spaces are available in all parking lots on all campuses.

Am I Eligible?

To qualify for appropriate accommodations, students must identify themselves to the college and provide documentation of a disability from a professional qualified to assess the presence of that disability. A student may register with Services for Students with Disabilities on a voluntary, confidential basis at any time. However, the college is not responsible for providing any accommodations for students who have not registered and requested accommodations.

Registering with Services for Students with Disabilities is a two-step process:

  1. Submit verifying medical documentation of a disability.
    1. Go to Etrieve to securely upload your documentation: https://bit.ly/TTC_Documentation.
    2. Log in using your TTC credentials.
    3. Upload your documentation and click submit.
  2. Schedule an Intake with a Disability Counselor to determine accommodations: https://bit.ly/TTC_DISABILITY_SERVICES.

During the Intake your needs will be discussed and reasonable accommodations will be determined. You will also receive information regarding procedures for using accommodations.

If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact our office at Counseling.Services@tridenttech.edu.
