Services for Students with
Wharton County Junior College is
committed to providing a discrimination-free environment for its students
with disabilities. Students with disabilities are encouraged to inform the
college of any assistance they may need upon application. Early
self-identification will allow the student to receive whatever accommodation
he or she may need as quickly as possible.
Students with disabilities are
encouraged to register with the ADA Coordinator, located in the Office of
Student Services and to provide appropriate medical documentation. This
action entitles qualified students with disabilities to their legal rights
and assures them of receiving information on services and procedures
available to them. Disability information is strictly confidential and is
not released without consent of the student.
It is the responsibility of the
student with a disability to voluntarily and confidentially disclose
information regarding the nature and extent of the disability. Wharton
County Junior College does not assume responsibility for providing special
accommodations and services to students who have not identified themselves
as having a qualifying disability and who have not made their need known.
disability services are based on individual needs and circumstances. To
initiate services, students should contact the ADA Coordinator, prior to
each semester. The ADA Coordinator’s office is located in the Office of
Student Services at 979-532-6384.
