PCOM is committed to providing equal access and reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities. Any requests for special accommodations must be requested and approved by the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs prior to the start of each term.
Forms and guidelines for documentation are available from the Office of Student Affairs on both campuses. The request must stipulate accommodations to be considered for the entire course of study at the College, and must be approved in advance of receiving the accommodation.
Students requiring accommodations are advised to contact the Office of Student Affairs on either campus as soon as possible to begin the formal request process.
If you have not been tested for a learning disability, but you suspect you might have a learning problem, the Office of Student Affairs can provide you with a list of licensed agencies qualified to perform the diagnostic evaluation. The cost is paid for by the student. PCOM does not provide learning disability testing.
If you indicated on the technical standards form that you need special accommodations, you will be receiving a packet with required forms and documentation.
Students in need of special testing or learning accommodations will need to complete these forms and documentation to acquire accommodations. We will work with you to ensure that your documentation is complete, and that your accommodations are met. If you have questions, please call 215-871-6870.
