In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, students must disclose disabilities to the counselor in order for Haywood Community College to provide reasonable accommodations.
- The student discloses the type of disability, the student’s limitations, and the current impact of the disability/medical condition to the counselor by completing the appropriate forms. The forms are available in the counselor’s office or at www.haywood.edu/counseling/disability_services.
- The student provides proof of the disability from a physician, psychologist or other appropriate professional stating the nature of the disability and recommendations for needed accommodations. The documentation must reflect the current impact of the disability. HCC’s staff is not able to diagnose disabilities. The documentation accepted at HCC may not suffice for universities or professional and certification exams.
- The student engages in an interview with the counselor.
- The counselor documents the reasonable accommodations that the college will provide as determined from the student/counselor interview and appropriate documentation. All of the information is collected by the counselor and filed with a copy of the mutually agreed upon accommodations.
- The student reviews the accommodations with each instructor within the first week of each semester.
- The student reviews the accommodations with the counselor prior to or at the beginning of each semester during which the student wishes to receive accommodations.
