At Wharton County Junior College, we believe in every student to achieve their full potential. Our comprehensive student disability services and accommodations ensure an inclusive, accessible learning environment in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Get the support you need to thrive at WCJC, from application through graduation.

Start Strong: Request Accommodations

Begin your academic journey with confidence. If you're a student with disabilities, we encourage you to self-identify and inform us of any assistance you may need during the application process. Early self-identification allows us to provide you with reasonable accommodations as quickly as possible. Rest assured, your disability information is strictly confidential and not part of your academic records.  This service and accommodations are free of charge to you. Follow these simple steps to receive the support you need:

Submit Your Documentation

Step 1
Provide documentation of your disability to the Office of Counseling and Disability Services or email it to disabilityservices@wcjc.edu Review our Documentation Guidelines to ensure you submit all required documents in a timely manner.

Schedule Your ADA Intake and Orientation Meeting

Step 2
Once your documentation is confirmed, contact the WCJC Office of Disability Services at disabilityservices@wcjc.edu to schedule an ADA Intake and Orientation meeting. 

Attend Your ADA Intake and Orientation Meeting

Step 3
Meet with a counselor to review your documentation and discuss your accommodations. This meeting can be in-person or virtual. Feel free to ask questions or request clarification.

Receive Your Customized ADA Accommodation Letter

Step 4
If approved, you'll receive a personalized ADA Eligibility Letter outlining your accommodations.  

Continuing Accommodations

Ensure seamless support throughout your academic journey. Request a continuation of your approved accommodations each semester by contacting the Office of Counseling and Disability Services at disabilityservices@wcjc.edu. ADA Accommodation Letters are course specific. They are e-mailed to the student each semester, when requested by the student.

Your Responsibilities as a Student

To receive accommodations, it's essential for you to voluntarily disclose your disability and request assistance in a timely manner. WCJC is committed to providing support but cannot assume responsibility for students who haven't identified themselves or requested accommodations.
