Disability Services

 

The mission of Disability Support Services (DSS) is to facilitate appropriate and reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities. It is the goal of DSS to ensure that students with disabilities have equal opportunity to achieve their personal academic goals while maintaining the integrity of Hinds Community College’s academic program requirements. Disability Support Services provides reasonable accommodations through a variety of services.

Hinds Community College seeks to comply with the letter, intent and spirit of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Section 504 and ADA require institutions not to discriminate against students with disabilities and to make all offerings and programs of the college accessible.

Hinds Community College provides reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities through Disability Support Services (DSS). DSS verifies eligibility for accommodations and works with eligible students who have self-identified and provided current documentation.

Students should schedule an appointment with the designated DSS staff member on their respective campus to establish a plan for reasonable classroom accommodations
