Disability Support Services
Fayetteville Technical Community College is committed to the equality of educational opportunities for qualified students and provides academic and technology resources to support student success while pursuing academic goals. Support services are provided for all registered students (day, evening, and online) with physical, psychological, or learning disabilities, but it is the responsibility of the student to request accommodations and provide appropriate documentation of the disability.
Requesting Reasonable Accommodations
Any student wishing to request academic accommodations due to a disability must make their request to the Office of Disability Support Services. Requests can be made at any time, but should be made within a reasonable time period for coordinating accommodations. Please follow the steps below to make your requests:
- Visit the Disability Support Services Office to pick up an intake packet. Our staff will explain how to complete the packet and the requirements for current disability documentation.
- Students may request an electronic copy of the intake packet by calling 910-678-8349 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Students must submit the completed intake packet, current disability documentation, current FTCC class schedule and a copy of their student ID to the Disability Support Services Office.
- Once all paperwork and disability documentation has been received, the student will be contacted to schedule an appointment with the Disability Support Services Coordinator to discuss their specific needs and requested accommodations.
Disability Support Services adapts college services to the specialized, individual needs of otherwise-qualified students with disabilities, as defined by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Subpart E), the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), and the NC Persons with Disabilities Protection Act.
The College does not exclude otherwise qualified persons with disabilities, solely by reason of the disability, from participating in College programs and activities; nor are persons with disabilities denied the benefits of these programs or subjected to discrimination.
Please request a meeting with a DSS Coordinator to discuss additional accommodations you may require.
