Bridgemont Community and Technical College strives to assist those students who are qualified for the protection garnered by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. To be eligible for the protection under Section 504 and the ADA, a student has the obligation and responsibility to self-identify the disability and must provide appropriate documentation at the beginning of each semester that they are enrolled.

A person with a disability has a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits a major life activity, has a record or history of such an impairment, and/or is regarded as having such an impairment. A learning disability is not a form of mental retardation or an emotional disorder. A learning disability (LD) is:

  • a permanent disorder which affects the manner in which an individual with normal or above-average intelligence takes in, retains, and expresses information;
  • commonly recognized in learning challenged adults as deficits in one or more of the fol¬¨lowing areas: reading comprehension, spelling, written expression, math computation, and problem-solving. Less frequent, but not less troublesome, are problems in organizational skills, time management, and study skills. Many learning challenged adults also may have language-based and/or perceptual problems; and
  • frustrating for those individuals who often feel the need to prove that their invisible disabilities may be as handicapping as paraplegia.

Bridgemont Community and Technical College will provide reasonable accommodations to the student known to have a disability in order to afford him/her an equal opportunity to participate in the programs, activities, and services provided by the Institution.

Students seeking assistance under Section 504 and the ADA must provide the ADA Office with proper documentation at the beginning of each semester in which they are enrolled.
