Disability Services

The mission of the Disability Services Office (DSO) is to promote reasonable accommodations and facilitate equal access to all services and programs at Navarro College. Other essential elements of the DSO are to: increase disability awareness, advocate for students with disabilities, provide training to faculty and staff, maintain compliance with federal law, and educate students in a least restrictive environment.  The DSO office works to accomplish these goals through advising, providing tutoring, special equipment, classroom and testing accommodations.

The DSO main office is located on the Corsicana campus in the Gooch One Stop Center, first floor office #223.  Services are available on all Navarro College campuses through coordination of personnel on each campus. If you feel that you may qualify for accommodations, please read the Guidelines for Disability Services below.

Navarro College also has an Ability Awareness Club located on the Corsicana campus. The club’s mission is to promote support, resources and education on overcoming obstacles and barriers that come with physical and learning disabilities. Please contact Amy Dojahn at 903-875-7377 or via email for more information.
