Pine Technical & Community College is committed to the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in its programs, services and activities through its compliance with state and federal laws. PTCC recognizes individuals with disabilities may need accommodations to have equally effective opportunities to participate in or benefit from programs, services and activities. Reasonable accommodations to ensure access to programs, services, and activities are made available at PTCC. Access means the qualified individual with a disability will not be excluded from participation or be denied the benefits of the services, programs or activities, nor will the individual be subjected to discrimination.
By law (Americans with Disabilities Act [ADA]), a person with a disability includes "any person who has a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activity and has a record as having such an impairment."
The Office of Disability Services at Pine Technical & Community College helps to "level the playing field" by eliminating barriers and discrimination against persons with disabilities. The Office offers certain accommodations, support and other resources. And, of course, all services are offered confidentially.
