Student Accessibility Services

The Student Accessibility Services (SAS) Office is committed to providing the access you need to do your best during your time here.

Services

TCC is committed to creating an accessible environment where individuals are viewed on the basis of their ability, not their disability. The Student Accessibility Services Office assists students in receiving educational accommodations, academic advising and other educational support services.

Applying for Services

1. Complete the online Application for Student Accessibility Services. This application will provide information that will help us support you and your educational goals. If you need the application in an alternate format, please let the SAS Office know.

2. Provide any documentation you feel will help the Advising Specialist better understand your strengths and needs. This may include an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), 504 Plan, Psychological Evaluation, medical documentation, or other documentation. After your initial meeting with an Advising Specialist, you may be asked to provide additional documentation.

3. Make an appointment to meet with an Advising Specialist in the SAS Office.

Please notify the office if you will not be able to keep your appointment.

Certiport Testing

In order to schedule accommodations for tests administered by Certiport, students need to set up a Certiport ID account, and provide both the Certiport Exam Accommodations Request Form and Release Form to the Student Accessibility Services Office. Certiport has specific guidelines for required documentation. Student Accessibility Services does not determine approval of accommodations for Certiport exams. The application will take up to 10 days to process, so we encourage you to complete the application as early as possible.

Please Click Here to complete the Certiport application process.

Please fax the Accommodations Request Form and Release Form, as well as a copy of your documentation to (850) 492-4160. Or, you may bring the application materials to our office, where someone can fax the information for you.
