Disability Support Services Office

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.

Our Mission 

Panola College Disability Support Services provides and coordinates support services to improve the
educational experience of students with qualifying disabilities by offering reasonable accommodations
in a holistic environment.

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 Handbook for Students with Disabilities and to contact the DSS office following admission to ensure needed accommodations are available at time of enrollment.
