Disability Support Services
The Disability Support Services (DSS) Office at Panola College provides and facilitates
support services and accommodations for students with disabilities. The DSS Office
works under the federal guidelines included in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act
of 1973 and Title II the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 in regards to postsecondary
education. Panola College is committed to providing a barrier-free educational environment
to the extent possible. To this end, every effort is made to ensure that programs
and facilities are accessible to students with disabilities. Support Services are
available to students to provide them with an equal opportunity to benefit from the
educational offerings of the institution and to participate in the life of the university.
A disability, as defined by federal guidelines, is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more life activities such as walking, hearing, or seeing. A student must self-identify, complete an Disability Accomodations Application, and provide recent documentation of his or her disability to the DSS office.
Disability Support Services will facilitate accommodations for students with documented disabilities. New students are encouraged to read the and to contact the DSS office following admission to ensure needed accommodations are available at time of enrollment.
