Student Accessibility Services
Are you a student with a disability preparing to take classes at Tallahassee Community College? Do you have concerns about registration, receiving accommodations, or getting around campus? The Student Accessibility Services (SAS) Office is committed to providing the access you need to do your best during your time here.
TCC is committed to creating an accessible environment where individuals are viewed on the basis of their ability, not their disability. The Student Accessibility Services Office assists students in receiving educational accommodations, academic advising and other educational support services.

Students can schedule accommodations for tests administered by Certiport by setting up a Certiport ID account, and making sure to provide both the Certiport Exam Accommodations Request Form and Release Form to the Student Accessibility Services Office. Please fax the Accommodations Request Form and Release Form, as well as a copy of your documentation to (850) 492-4160. Or, you may bring the application materials to our office, where someone can fax the information for you.
The application will take up to 10 days to process, so we encourage you to complete the application as early as possible.
Certiport has specific guidelines for required documentation. Student Accessibility Services does not determine approval of accommodations for Certiport exams.
You can schedule an appointment via phone, e-mail, or by visiting our office. Advising Specialists see students by appointment, and on a walk-in basis. Available walk-in times are displayed outside of the office, located in the Student Union, Room 172.
