Accommodations and services

PCC Accessible Ed & Disability Resources uses an interactive process to meet the needs of students who experience disability. Our counselors and specialists meet with students individually to verify eligibility for specific academic adjustments – see the accommodation process page. Examples of accommodations and services available for use by eligible students include but are not limited to the following:

Classroom accommodations

Course material accommodations

Liaison services

  • We offer collaboration and engagement through an interactive process. When students are eligible for liaison services such as consideration for flexibility with attendance, deadlines, or group work, there is an e-form that needs to be signed before requesting accommodations. The language for this e-form can be reviewed in advance. Please reach out to Accessible Ed & Disability Resources with any questions about rights and responsibilities.
  • When requests for consideration of adjustments to course-specific policies [pdf] are included on faculty notification letters, Accessible Ed & Disability Resources provides brief agreement forms to assist. These forms document ways flexibility can be put in place on a course by course basis without fundamentally altering or lowering standards. Complete these forms through the online accommodation system and preview the questions.
  • Forms can be completed by students working directly with their instructors, or they can be completed by AEDR on behalf of students and instructors. Once a form has been completed or modified, email confirmations will be sent to both the student and instructor. AEDR is available to assist at any point in the process.
  • Statements of support may be discussed and provided as appropriate.
  • We may also provide assistance for students navigating college processes, such as financial aid appeals, academic progress reviews, or student conduct hearings.
  • GED® test accommodations and guidance may be provided for external testing services.
