Accessibility Supports and Disability Services
GPRC offers a variety of services which help to equalize educational opportunities for students with disabilities. The Accessibility Supports and Disability Services promotes and coordinates a variety of accommodations, on an individual case basis, to make your chosen program workable for you. You will need to meet the admission requirements for your program.
GPRC strives to ensure a fair, equitable and accessible environment for students with Disabilities or Medical Conditions. The goal of providing academic accommodations is to establish an “equitable playing field” for all students within the postsecondary environment.
Postsecondary students seeking disability or medically related accommodations and services or funding for assistive services and technology are required to provide documentation from a qualified professional such as a physician, psychologist, audiologist, ophthalmologist, or other licensed specialists. The documentation should clearly outline the impact the disability or condition has on the student in an academic setting. The Accessibility Supports and Disability Services will use this documentation, along with other information obtained during interviews, assessment and trials, to determine appropriate disability-related accommodations and supports.

Support Services are addressed on an individual basis while maintaining the academic integrity of the institution.
