Accessibility Resource Center
The Accessibility Resource Center (ARC) works with students who have various conditions that impact their educational experiences to establish reasonable academic accommodations that support student access and success. These conditions include medical or mental health conditions; physical, sensory, or learning disabilities; attention-related diagnoses; and many others.
Students must self-identify conditions and request accommodations and supports by completing the Initial Request for Accessibility Services form online at www.tctc.edu/ARC.
Documentation requirements and additional information can be found at www.tctc.edu/ARC. Documentation can be submitted via the online form or delivered to the ARC. Once the form is completed, an ARC staff member will reach out using the contact information provided in the form. Students are encouraged to complete the form and contact the ARC prior to the start of classes.
Students can contact the ARC with any questions by emailing ARCenter@tctc.edu, calling 864-646-1563, visiting the ARC in the Student Support suite in the Ronnie L. Booth Student Success Center (Pendleton Campus) or the front desk of any community campus. The ARC staff can also meet students at any other campus location upon request.
Accommodations cannot be retroactively applied to previous courses or course content prior to the determination of accommodations by the ARC.
Tri-County Technical College complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
