Disability Support Services

It is the policy of Wallace Community College to provide reasonable accommodations for environmental and program accessibility to individuals with a diagnosed disability as defined in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). Specialized services and accommodations provide students with disabilities complete access to all academic, health sciences, technical, and College programs.

Students are responsible for reporting their requested needs to the campus Disability Support Services Compliance Officer and providing proper documentation of their disabilities to the DSS office. Early contact (recommended at least 6 weeks in advance of the start of the term) is essential to allow sufficient time for evaluating, planning, and arranging needed accommodations and services.

For detailed information on available services and eligibility, contact the Director, Student and Campus Services on the Dothan Campus by telephone at 334-556-2587; by fax at 334-556-2575; or in writing to Disability Support Services Compliance Officer, Wallace Community College, 1141 Wallace Drive, Dothan, Alabama 36303. Information on disability support services for the Sparks Campus may be obtained from the Coordinator, Student Services at 334-687-3543, Ext. 4270.

Complaints regarding accessibility on the Dothan Campus should be reported to the Director, Student and Campus Services at 334-556-2587, and on the Sparks Campus should be reported to the Coordinator, Student Services at 334- 687-3543, ext. 4270.
