Disability Services

Denmark Technical College works to make sure its programs, services, and activities are accessible to all students, in accordance with the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The accommodation process is a collaborative process to understand the student's disability experience and how the disability may impact the student's educational experience in order to determine reasonable accommodations. It is the student's responsibility to self-disclose as a student with a disability and to request accommodations through the Counseling Department.

The Disability Services Division provides counseling and support which helps students with disabilities pursue an academic program of their choice and participate fully in campus life. The counseling office can arrange counseling, special parking, priority registration and other services needed by students with disabilities.
