Wharton County Junior College is an equal opportunity institution. It does not discriminate against any person in its employment, personnel relations, admission or services because of the person’s race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, marital status, amnesty, or status as a covered veteran in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws.  The College complies with the provisions of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (P.L. 88-352), Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (P.L. 92-318), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (P.L. 93-112), and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (P.L. 101- 336). Any allegations of violation should be brought to the attention of the Affirmation Action Officer. 


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 they may need as quickly as possible.

Students desiring accommodations must register with Disability Services Coordinator and provide appropriate medical and/or psychological 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.

Specific disability services are based on individual needs and circumstances to initiate services. Students should contact the Disability Services Coordinator prior to each semester. This Disability Services Coordinator's office is located in the Office of Student Services.
