Who is eligible?

As a student at SPC with a documented disability, you may be eligible for reasonable accommodations.  If you think you have a disabling condition and would like to meet with one of our Accessibility Services Coordinators to learn more about reasonable accommodation in college, please contact an Accessibility Services Coordinator.

What Services are Available?

Reasonable accommodations are offered based on documented need. Accommodations may include:

  • Assistive Technology
  • Early Registration
  • Sign Language Interpreters
  • Captioning Services
  • Classroom Furniture Modifications

Under Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disability Act of 1990, SPC seeks to ensure that admission, academic programs, support services, student activities and campus facilities are accessible to and usable by all students who attend the college. Students with disabilities who desire accommodations need to provide appropriate documentation of a disability and request services from Accessibility Services through one of the Accessibility Coordinators.

St. Petersburg College recognizes the importance of equal access to learning opportunities for all students. Accessibility Services (AS) is the campus office that works with students who have disabilities to provide and/or arrange reasonable accommodations. Students registered with AS, who are requesting accommodations, are encouraged to contact their instructor by the first week of the semester. Students who have, or think they may have, a disability (e.g. learning disability, ADD/ADHD, psychiatric, medical/orthopedic, vision, and/or hearing), are invited to contact the Accessibility Coordinator (AC) that serves your campus for a confidential discussion.

Equal Access/Equal Opportunity Statement

The Board of Trustees of St. Petersburg College affirms its equal opportunity policy in accordance with the provisions of the Florida Educational Equity Act and all other relevant state and federal laws, rules and regulations. The College will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, age, national origin, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, or against any qualified individual with disabilities in its employment practices or in the admission and treatment of students. Recognizing that sexual harassment constitutes discrimination on the basis of sex and violates this Rule, the College will not tolerate such conduct. Should you experience such behavior, please contact the Equal Access/Equal Opportunity Office at 727-341-3261; by mail at P.O. Box 13489, St. Petersburg, FL 33733-3489; or by email at eaeo_director@spcollege.edu.

Informal and Formal Grievance

The Accessibility Services Office is available to informally discuss complaints or concerns to ascertain the best course of action in accordance with the College’s policy and procedures. The goal of informal resolution is not to determine whether there was intent to discriminate but to ensure that the alleged discriminatory conduct ceases and that the matter is resolved promptly at the lowest possible level.

Students or third parties who have a disability or accessibility related grievance (non-academic grievance) and who are alleging disability discrimination in violation of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 should follow College Procedure P6Hx23-4.364. As described in this Procedure, if you wish to file a formal disability or accessibility related grievance, complete the Discrimination Report Form at www.spcollege.edu/eaeo.
