At Wilson Community College, we want your educational experience to be complete, positive, and fulfilling. We realize that some students learn differently. We know that reasonable accommodations can provide you with equal access to the learning environment. We want to assist you in getting the education that you need to enter the workforce or to transfer to a four-year institution.
Our instructors and staff have experience working with students who have disabilities. Also, our buildings provide adequate architectural and structural access for students with physical disabilities.
Wilson Community College has adopted the following policy to guide its delivery of services to students with disabilities:
No otherwise qualified individual shall solely by reason of disability be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity at Wilson Community College.
