Welcome to the Special Resources Office at York Technical College. The Office is dual-purposed, providing: Disability Services and Support to Student Veterans. The purpose of the Special Resources Office (SRO) is to provide accessible, relevant, and high quality services to students with disabilities and special needs. The SRO provides opportunities for individuals with diverse backgrounds and ability levels to acquire or upgrade the knowledge and skills offered through York Technical College programs. Students with disabilities are served in accordance to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
The SRO coordinates services and accommodations for students with documented disabilities. These services provide equal educational opportunities to students by minimizing the impact of functional limitations on academic pursuits. Students seeking services and accommodations must:
- self-identify at the SRO, provide appropriate documentation of disability, and specify accommodation needs and requests.
An "information packet" of intake materials is available in the SRO. After review of documentation, and an intake interview with the student, reasonable academic adjustments (accommodations) are determined. Adjustments will be flexible, meeting the needs of various disabilities, and are consistent with the documentation provided, without fundamentally altering the academic standards of the course/program. Requests for adjustments should be made in a timely manner (preferably with a two-week notice) dependent upon the nature of the request.
The Special Resources Office (SRO) is located in the Student Services Building at York Technical College (across from the Financial Aid and Admissions offices).
