Accessibility Services

Owensboro Community and Technical College is committed to providing equal educational opportunity and full participation for persons with disabilities. It is OCTC's policy that no otherwise qualified person with a disability be excluded from participating in any OCTC program or activity, be denied the benefits of any OCTC program or activity, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination with regard to any OCTC program or activity.

Reasonable accommodations will be made to qualifying individuals. A reasonable accommodation is a change or adjustment within an educational program, activity or service that provides a person with a disability equal opportunity to participate in the educational process, so long as the accommodation does not fundamentally alter the program or place an undue burden on OCTC.

Registering your disability with Accessibility Services involves a simple three-step process:

Step 1:  Complete the Accommodation Request Form.

Step 2:  Obtain appropriate documentation (guidelines are found here) of your disability (within 3 years).  The Disability Information Request form may serve as documentation if completed by a qualified professional. (Because obtaining documentation may take some time, it's best to start as soon as possible.)

Step 3:  Schedule a meeting with a counselor.  The counselor will review all documents and develop a plan of services with you. 

**All students with disabilities, whether diagnosed or not, may contact the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (270-687-7308) to discuss qualification for VR services.**
