Student Information on Disability Services
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:
Admission/registration assistance, advising, and advocacy
Accommodations for classes, including:
- 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
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.
