Access and Disability Services

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 & 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.
