Services for Students with Disabilities

San Jacinto College does not discriminate on the basis of disabilities in admission or access to its educational programs. The College complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1972 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Students with disabilities may be eligible for certain accommodations such as additional testing time, registration assistance, or interpreting services. The College’s Accessibility Services office assists students who may need accommodations. Students wishing to apply for accommodations should go to www.sanjac.edu/accessibility to complete the online application. Inquiries about accessibility services may be addressed to accessibility.services@sjcd.edu or by visiting the Educational Planning, Counseling, & Completion office on each campus.

Central campus:    281-478-2768

South campus:      281-922-3444

Any student with a question or concern about discrimination or harassment based on disability may file a complaint in accordance with Procedure 300 in the Student Handbook. Individuals who wish to file a complaint may obtain information about the complaint process at www.sanjac.edu/complaint-process.

Students with disabilities have the right to appeal accommodation decisions made through Educational Planning, Counseling, & Completion (EPCC). To appeal, an individual first will have needed to have completed the Accessibility Services Accommodation Application.

Individuals wanting to appeal the decision must do so in writing within 14 days of the notice of the accommodation decision. The appeal should include a copy of the original request for accommodation, documentation of disability, the accommodation decision, and the reasons why the individual is appealing the decision. The appeal is to be sent to the Director of EPCC (on each respective campus) who, after a review, will render a written decision, typically within two weeks or less.

For inquiries, students may call:

Central campus:      281-478-2768
North campus:         281-459-7192
South campus:        281-922-3444

The Director of EPCC will provide students an opportunity to present information useful to understanding the appeal. The Director of EPCC may decide to uphold the previous accommodation decision, support the appeal request, decide on an alternative or decide that new information has been submitted that necessitates further review.
