Students with disabilities may request accommodations, through ADR, for access to classes, programs, and activities. Students may request accommodations by contacting ADR at 520-206-6688 or ADRhelp@pima.edu, or by calling or by visiting any campus ADR office. ADR has offices at each campus.
An ADR staff member determines each student’s need for the specific accommodation requested through discussions with the student and, as necessary, faculty, program supervisors and staff.
Examples of accommodations that may be approved include:
- Alternative format text, such as e-text, electronic handouts and Braille
- Alternative testing arrangements, such as extended time, a quiet location, use of access technologies and alternatively formatted material
- Access technology, such as voice recognition, text-to-speech software, magnification software, calculators and spell checkers
- Alternative classroom access, such as furniture, amplification, closed captioning, real-time transcription, interpreter, note taking and preferential seating
Other accommodations may also available to students based on individual needs and barriers they encounter in accessing PCC activities, services and programs. Students should be prepared to discuss the barriers they encounter and suggest ways to reduce or eliminate them. Service animals trained to perform specific tasks for an individual with a disability do not require ADR approval. Other animals, including comfort or therapy animals, must be approved by ADR as an accommodation before being used at the College.
