Disability Resources and Services
The Paradise Valley Community College (PVCC) Disability Resources and Services (DRS) Office provides accommodations and services to students with disabilities to ensure equal access to all PVC programs, services, and activities. Our office strives to empower students, foster independence and self-advocacy, in order to promote achievement of career and educational goals. DRS works with students, faculty, and campus staff to determine and implement reasonable accommodations representative of equal access.
A student wishing to use services must meet MCCCD admissions requirements, or be enrolled as an MCCCD student, and provide DRS with documentation outlining the nature of the disability prior to receiving any accommodations. DRS is responsible for evaluating documentation and determining reasonable accommodations.
