Office of Disabilities and Accommodations

Students or prospective students with disabilities can contact the Office of Disabilities and Accommodations. The Office of D/A exists to assist students with documented disabilities as they pursue their goal of a college education. The office serves as a liaison between students and the college in matters of communication and action toward achievement of reasonable accommodations. Each student is encouraged to act as his or her own advocate, and take the major responsibility for securing accommodations. The Office of D/A provides students with the voluntary and confidential means to seek accommodations for academic and related needs. Early and regular contact will assure the timely identification of needed services and the location of resources and options available to the student.

Eligibility for disability services at Weatherford College is dependent upon the nature of the disability and its impact on learning. A disability is defined as any mental or physical condition that substantially limits an individual’s ability to perform one or more major life activities. These disabilities may be: physical, visual or auditory, neurological or psychological in nature, and also include chronic health problems and learning and communication disorders.

The Office of D/A is located in Student Services-upper level. Due to the high volume of students who receive services through this office it is highly recommended that students make appointments with the counselor in the Office of Disabilities and Accommodations located in Students Services or call 817-598-6350.
