Accessibility and Disability Services for Students
Disability Services works to ensure that any student with documented disabilities receives reasonable accommodations in accordance with the policies underlying Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and ADA Amended Acts (ADAA AA) of 2010. Students receive services and accommodations while completing regular course offerings, and all students are held to the same academic standards of the College.

Passaic County Community College recognizes that students with documented physical, emotional, medical, or learning disability may require accommodations to meet their learning potential. The Disability Specialist serves to both determine and document what reasonable accommodations may be for the student. Reasonable accommodations include, but are not limited to: alternate testing arrangements, books in alternate format, peer note takers, adaptive/assistive technology, and assistance in arranging for sign language interpreters. To qualify for accommodations, students must submit appropriate professional documentation that shows they have an impairment that limits a major life activity.

The Office of Disability Services is located in Memorial Hall room 244 on the Paterson campus. Meetings can be arranged at the Passaic Academic Center or the Wanaque Academic Center. To contact a Disability Specialist, please email ods@pccc.edu or link to pccc.edu/ods.
