Welcome! Disability Services is responsible for coordinating reasonable accommodations for students. To receive accommodations, students must complete the steps below.
Roane State has a Counselor at Roane County (D-111) and at Oak Ridge (B-112). Services are provided by appointment at these and other campus locations. Please call (865) 481-2003 (preferred method) for an appointment or email us. If you email us, please provide your phone number so that we can call you to schedule your appointment and provide important information you will need prior to your appointment.
Please note that assistive technology is available to qualified students on a case-by-case basis as deemed appropriate by Disability Services. Some assistive technology is available on a first-come, first serve basis. Students with questions about assistive technology should contact Disability Services.
Please see the CTAT Accessibility web page for students for more information, online training guides, and videos for some software/assistive technology.
Students needing one-on-one training on the use of assistive technology should contact CTAT to schedule an appointment.
Disability Services is responsible for coordinating reasonable accommodations for students in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 (as amended in 2008). Any student who has a disability that would like to request reasonable accommodations must contact Disability Services, submit the Self-Disclosure Information Form, and provide appropriate documentation of the disability from a qualified professional directly to Disability Services. Participation in disability services is on a voluntary basis and the sole decision of the student. Student accommodations are coordinated on a case-by-case basis through Disability Services. Dual studies students are to follow this same process. Faculty and staff accommodations are coordinated through Human Resources.
In general, a reasonable accommodation is a change or alteration in the educational environment or in the way things are customarily done that enables a qualified student with a disability to enjoy equal access. However, accommodations do not guarantee success. A reasonable accommodation must not fundamentally alter the program, service, activity, or academic requirements. Modifications are not allowed in college. Students receiving accommodations must meet all admissions, academic, clinical, skills, and program requirements. All students will be expected to show competency in the course material/skills. Please note that personal assistant services are not considered reasonable and are not provided by the college. Accommodations are not retroactive, and they do not roll from semester to semester. Students are required to schedule an appointment for accommodations with Disability Services each semester before classes begin. Please see the Disability Services Handbook for more information.
