TCC Accessibility Support

The Education Access Center (EAC) and the Resource Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing are your resources.

Faculty Roles:

Everyone at the college has a shared responsibility to provide access to all students.  As faculty, you can refer students to the appropriate disability resource office, include a statement in your syllabus with contact information, keep disability related information confidential, and hold all students to the same academic and conduct standards.

Faculty Notification Letters:

Faculty Notification Letters include the approved accommodations a student will receive for a class.  Students registered with the EAC, and enrolled in on-campus classes, will receive their faculty notification letter so they may hand deliver the letter to their instructor.  The letter will be in a sealed envelope. If the letter is opened or appears to be tampered with for any reason, we ask that you contact the EAC at 918-595-7115.  For EAC students enrolled in online classes, the faculty notification letter will be emailed to the instructor with a copy emailed to the student.

For students registered with the RCDHH, all faculty notification letters are emailed to the faculty with a copy emailed to the student.

Faculty Resources:
