Disability Services

Request disability accommodations and get an overview of the types of services we provide.

Wor-Wic provides reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Documentation can be an official evaluation or letter from a licensed professional that clearly states your diagnosis, or an IEP or 504 from your high school. The college does not evaluate, diagnose or treat disabilities.   
Appropriate documentation should be submitted to the Academic and Disabilities Counselor at least four weeks before the start of classes so that eligibility can be determined and the appropriate accommodations can be made.

Transitioning from High School
  • Making the transition from high school to college is tough for all students, but especially so for those with disabilities. College requires a great deal more independence and hard work than you experience in high school.
  • In many instances, students are not eligible for the same level of academic support that their IEP’s or 504 plans entitled them to in high school. It is also important to note that the IEP/504 plan is not automatically forwarded to your new college—it is your responsibility to provide the information to the college.
