Accessibility

ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Statement
 

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe that you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact Disability Services by calling 979-845-1637.


Parking for Students with Disabilities

For students with disabled permits, There are disabled spaces in 122a, b, c, and d.

See more information on our parking page, or on the SSWC page about parking at White Creek.
 


Wheelchair Access

The main entrances to all modular buildings in the Student Services @ White Creek complex are wheelchair accessible. All offices and public areas of the buildings are wheelchair accessible, and accessible rest rooms are available in each building.
 


Vision Impaired Access

All signs follow ADA guidelines, and door signs are in both contrasting raised letters and in Braille. Door signs are either on the wall five feet from the floor on the door knob side, or in the center of the closed door if there is no sign on the wall.
 


Speech and Hearing Impaired Access

The HelpLine phone number (979.845.2700) is equipped with both voice and teletype assistive devices (V/TTY). The V/TTY designation indicates that the HelpLine can be called with either an ordinary telephone or a teletype device (TTY), so it is accessible to people with speech and hearing difficulties.

If you need special accommodations that we have not anticipated, or if you have any suggestions for improving the accessibility of our building, any of our services or programs, or these web pages, please let us know.
