Disability Awareness Month

In recognition of Disability Awareness Month, we invite the Pierce College community to join us for a screening of Becoming Bulletproof

In this riveting film, a diverse group of people with disabilities from across the U.S. take on leading roles in a hilarious costume-drama Western. This film-within-a film immerses us in a dynamic, inclusive world, raising questions about why we so rarely see real disabled actors on the big screen.

New Online System for Requesting Accommodations

Starting Fall 2018, ADS is switching to a new online request system called myADS. This system will not only allow potential ADS students to submit ADS applications online, but it will also allow continuing students to request their quarterly accommodation without all the steps required in the past.

New Students

If you are a student with a disability who would like to request services through ADS, please complete our New Student Application.

Current Students

With our new system, you will be able to request your quarterly accommodations without ever having to visit ADS. In order to access myADS, you will need to log in using the username and password that was recently sent to your student email address by ADS. If you did not receive an email, please contact us.

Log In to My ADS AIM

Once you have logged in to the system, you can request your quarterly accommodations using the Accommodations link. From there, myADS will take you through the steps of requesting your quarterly accommodations. In order to help familiarize you with myADS, we have created a short tutorial about the steps for requesting accommodation.

About the Access and Disability Services Department

Pierce College supports an integrated learning experience for students with disabilities by promoting an environment that is free from physical and attitudinal barriers. Students are encouraged to develop successful learning strategies in collaboration with faculty and staff.

Students with permanent or temporary disabilities may be eligible for services. Please contact Access and Disability Services (ADS) for more information on required documentation and the process for eligibility.

Services and academic adjustments are designed to ensure that students with a disability have equal access to all college activities and programs.

It is the goal of ADS to provide an open door to any student who believes he or she may need our services. In addition to approved academic adjustments and services, ADS offers assistive technology and learning strategies for students.

Information regarding Access and Disability Services is available in alternate formats upon request. Additionally, ADS provides for accommodations at college sponsored events.
