Student Information on Disability Services

Welcome!

Disability Services collaborates with students, staff, faculty, and community members to create inclusive, equitable, diverse, and sustainable learning environments for all. Tillamook Bay Community College provides a wide range of in-class and campus access services to students who experience documented disabilities. The department is a resource for creative problem-solving to enhance access in the following areas:

-          Test accommodations (extended time, reduced distraction, reader, scribe)

-          Alternate format (computer text with digital audio, Braille)

-          Technology (computer software and hardware and other devices)

-          Service Providers (sign language interpreter, classroom aide)

-          Accessibility information, maps, and basic mobility orientation

Application Process

Disability Services Advisors work closely with students to learn about their particular needs. Our goal is to provide students with the resources — accommodations, strategies and support — to improve access to the learning environment.

In order to receive accommodations, please submit an application, along with paperwork confirming a disability. Then have a student interview with a Disability Services Advisor to discuss possible accommodations.

You may use the following forms and checklist to guide the process.

  • Have you completed a Disabilities Intake Form?

You may complete the Disabilities Intake Form by clicking on the form to the right. Complete and save the form on your computer or fill it in manually, and send, fax or bring it to the Disability Services office. If you would like assistance filling out the form, come to TBCC Disability Services for one on one help.

  • Submit disability paperwork that describes how your disability affects you in the learning environment.

This may include any of the following:

    • Copies of Medical Records.

    • Evaluations or Diagnostic Reports.

  • Make copies of all documentation for your own records.
  • Send or bring the forms to our office at:

Tillamook Bay Community College, Disability Services
4301 Third St, Tillamook, OR 97141
or Fax to (503) 842-8222

Once we have had an opportunity to review the information, we will contact you to make an intake appointment to discuss your application and accommodation needs.

Students are responsible for initiating the accommodation request process. You should begin these steps immediately after you've registered for classes and before the term begins. Please schedule an appointment to discuss specific needs and to request accommodations prior to each term. Disability Services is available through the Disability Services Advisor in Student Services, 503-842-8222 ext. 1140.
