Home / Disabilities Resources for Students
CPTC wants to help all students succeed. Disability Resources for Students (DRS) is dedicated to ensuring access and inclusion to academic programs and college-sponsored events for students at Clover Park Technical College. DRS serves students with temporary and/or permanent physical, health, learning, sensory and/or psychological disabilities. Access and inclusion is a collaborative effort. Students requesting services must do so in a timely manner as some requests can take several weeks to arrange. Please be aware that accommodations are not retroactive. Students requesting services for the first time must meet with CPTC’s DRS Coordinator. Students must provide documentation from a qualified professional verifying the existence of a disability and its potential impact on academic success. Accommodations are determined on an individual basis based on the documentation provided. Possible accommodations include but are not limited to:
• Exam accommodations
• Alternatively formatted class materials such as text books in Word docs, PDFs, MP3, Braille and/or large print
• Sign Language interpreting
• Alternative classroom furnishing
To arrange accommodations, students should contact the Disability Resources Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 253-589-5548 to schedule an appointment. Requests for accommodations should be received in a timely manner, ideally six weeks prior to the beginning of the program/event or class for which the request is made. Lack of advance notice may delay the availability of an accommodation. The complete Clover Park Technical College Policies and Procedures for Reasonable Accommodations for Students with Disabilities under ADA/504 is available in Building 17.
