General Information for Faculty and Staff


The primary goal of the ACCESS office is to ensure that the college follows ADA guidelines by providing reasonable accommodations, individual attention, and support for students with disabilities who need assistance with any aspect of their campus experience such as accessibility, academics, testing, and registration.

There are resources available below, however, because you may experience individual differences, even within the same disability category, the ACCESS Office is available to assist you. If you have any questions concerning the student or the accommodations, please do not hesitate in to contact us. We are here to work with you in providing the appropriate support for all Collin students.

Please Remember: Although there is no magic formula or one set strategy that will work for every class or every student; instructors should

  • Assess their individual class climate and environment
  • Examine the unique needs of your (ACCESS) students
  • Plan accordingly... Bend Don’t Break
