Serving Students with Disabilities

Thomas Edison State College is an equal opportunity institution, committed to providing equal access to its educational programs for students with disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as amended, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination prohibit discrimination against students with disabilities. Under these laws, students with documented disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations. The College's Office of Student Special Services assists students who have disclosed and verified their disability to that office. Once an individual self-identifies as a student with a disability, the ADA Coordinator will engage the student in an interactive process in order to determine a reasonable accommodation.

Thomas Edison State College is designed to work with students at a distance and does not require students to earn credit through any specific credit-earning method. Students can communicate with the College by letter, fax, telephone, computer and the telecommunications system for the deaf: TTY (Relay Call). College materials have been written to provide sufficient information and guidance so that it is not necessary for students to come to the College campus, but should students wish to visit, all College buildings are accessible.
