Disability Support Services is a program that seeks to meet the needs of students with disabilities by providing appropriate accommodations that create equal opportunities. This allows students to demonstrate their abilities at the college, to have equal access to programs and activities, and ensures the college is in compliance with state and federal civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities.
While the disability may explain inappropriate behavior by the student, it does not excuse the behavior; therefore, students with disabilities are subject to any appropriate and necessary disciplinary action, including suspension or expulsion.
Chattanooga State makes every reasonable effort to accommodate individuals with disabilities. In keeping with this commitment, Personal Care Attendants (PCAs) may be necessary to address the personal needs of a student with a disability so he/she can participate in the College's activities, services, and programs.
