Have you ever wanted to attend college but felt as if your disability prohibited you from accom- plishing your academic goals? If you answered yes, now is the time to pursue your educational dreams. Fayetteville Technical Community College renders its services to students who require accom- modations based on mental, emotional or physical impairments through its own Disability Support Services Office. e DSSO is an exclusive entity within Student Services at FTCC, and we take great pride in assist- ing students (online and on campus) who have dis- abilities since we are a renowned equal opportunity, learning and educational institution. e academic rigor of curriculum courses does not change based on the diagnosis or disorder of the student. e services and accommodations provid- ed by our department are implemented to promote fairness within education. e purpose of quality education is to retain knowledge and to foster career opportunities through a mastery level of academic retention. FTCC policies and procedures, which can be found on the FTCC website, comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. It is essential to FTCC that our students do not un- dergo discrimination or exclusion from participating in college events and programs and are not denied curriculum or non-curriculum educational activities and opportunities based on any form of a medi- cally diagnosed disability. All prospective students applying to FTCC are welcome to visit the DSSO to obtain information before enrolling into programs that the college has to offer. Our team will be glad to answer any questions regarding ADA compliance and services provided to the public. When applying to FTCC, future students are provided with information about where and how to apply for disability services. Once a student submits the proper documentation through the DSSO, ac- commodations will be granted. e DSSO promptly sends accommodations to the faculty members after the student completes required actions. It is the student's responsibility to follow a simple step-by- step process to renew accommodations for each semester. e appropriate documents to receive and to maintain academic accommodations consist of a valid medical evaluation that must come from a li- censed psychological or medical provider within the last five years. If students cannot provide required medical information, some temporary services may be determined and arranged on a case-by-case basis. ose receiving services provided by the DSSO should have no concern about their data being vulnerable to public exposure as the department responsibly guarantees secure, ethical and legal protocols for protecting students' welfare. Students' medical information is protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 and is considered confidential. Our department is located in the Tony Rand Student Center, Room 127. Please do not hesitate to contact the DSSO at any time with questions, comments or concerns regarding student accommodations, ADA compliance, or professional assistance. FTCC looks forward to the opportunity to help you find your way forward.
