Student Services and the College Disability Services staff provide accommodations and support to assist students with disabilities. In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the College supports the registration of all qualified persons with a disability. The College does not exclude or deny access to the benefits of any program, service or activity sponsored by the College to any students solely on the basis of disability.
Students interested in applying for these accommodations should meet with a counselor located in the Student Services office. While no specialized curriculum is offered, it is the role of the College Student Services office to coordinate services and resources to qualifying students. The first step for a student seeking services is to complete an Application for Accommodations. The form can be returned in person, or emailed to the ADA Coordinator.
Once a complete application is submitted, along with appropriate and professional documentation, the student will be contacted within 10 business day with an accommodation plan, or to request additional information.
As stated in Student Services policy, Davis Technical College is fully committed to policies of non-discrimination and equal opportunity and vigorously pursues equality and diversity goals in all programs, activities and employment. In compliance with Title VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Vocational Amendments of 1976 and the American with Disabilities Act, College programs and activities are open to all qualified students without regard to race, age, color, religion, sex, national origin, or disability. If you feel you have been discriminated against, please talk to a Counselor in Student Services. You may contact the Office for Civil Rights if you are unable to resolve your concerns on campus.

The ADA Applications are kept in Students Services, in the main building at the Davis Tech campus. To obtain an application, check in with the Student Services desk. When brought into Student Services, ask for an application.
You will be required to provide information about how your disability impacts your functioning in an education setting. In most situations, you will be referred to an ADA counselor to discuss needs and to arrange accommodations.
Documentation needs to help Davis Tech to understand the nature of your disability. IEPs from High School, evaluations from Vocational Rehabilitation, letters from medical professionals are some examples.
The student is responsible for providing verification of disability and to pay for evaluations. If a student is working with a rehabilitation agency, he/she should request that the information regarding diagnosis, functional limitations and appropriate recommendations for accommodations be provided, if possible, through that agency.
A variety of services appropriate for qualifying disabilities may include, but are not limited to:
- Appropriate classroom adaptations or accommodations
- Note takers or readers
- Testing accommodations
- Taped textbooks

- Specialized equipment like screen reading software, screen enlargements, etc.

If you feel that you are being discriminated against, for any reason, and you cannot resolve your concerns immediately through self-advocacy in your training environment, you are encouraged to see a member of the College Counseling Team in Student Services. You can ask to see the first counselor available to review your concerns and talk about what to do. If your informal efforts to resolve your concerns are not working out, you can talk to your Counselor about the Student Grievance Policy. You may prefer to talk to a Director of Programs (in the Training Division) or the Director of Student Affairs (in Student Services) about your concerns. Students may also wish to contact the Office of Civil Rights if they cannot resolve their concerns on campus.
