General Information

Accessibility Resource Center (ARC) provides support services to TCNJ students who have identified themselves as having disabilities. Accommodations may be needed across multiple college functional areas:  academic, classroom, housing, parking, dining, etc. and we will work with all of those campus partners to implement appropriate access.

We ask for written documentation of the student’s disability that will identify the need and support the accommodations that are appropriate. We recommend that the student start the process at least several weeks ahead of the start of the semester. The steps are laid out here.

Please note that the Accessibility Resource Center highly regards the confidentiality of your records and all documents will be securely filed with ARC.

It is the responsibility of the student to contact ARC to arrange an appointment with an ARC Accessibility Specialist. This discussion will enable the student to best utilize the office and its services and to help ensure a smoother transition into the college environment. For very specific accommodation needs that may be time -sensitive, it is important to contact the office as soon as possible (e.g. sign language interpreters, major residence hall adjustments, etc.).
