Hagerstown Community College provides reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and its amendments. Although the College does not have a special education program for students with disabilities, the Disability Services Office coordinates the provision of reasonable accommodations which are determined on an individual basis.
These accommodations allow students to be evaluated not on the effects of their disability, but instead on their knowledge and understanding of course material. In no case, however, will the College modify essential requirements for any course or degree program for students with disabilities.
All accommodations are based upon documentation that must be provided by a licensed or certified professional. It is the student’s responsibility to identify him/herself to the coordinator of disability services at 240-500-2273 (TTY 301-739-5813), at least two weeks prior to the start of classes to allow time for necessary arrangements.
Students must provide documentation to the Disability Office from a certified professional. The documentation must be recent and generally be no more than 3 years old. This documentation must include a formal evaluation, diagnosis of a disability, and provide recommendations concerning academic accommodations. If students suspect that they have a disability and do not have appropriate documentation, please see the referral list  or contact the Academic and Special Student Advisor.
