Services for Students with Special Needs
Thank you for joining us to accomplish both your short term and lifelong educational goals. Remember that a first-class education like the one you will receive is NOT something that just happens to you. Galveston College will provide the resources and support but you must bring the commitment. Commitment means attending classes, setting aside adequate study time, and utilizing support services.
While you are here on campus, take advantage of our Learning Resource Center (library), Computers Labs, Student Success Center (tutoring), Testing Center, Fitness Center and food services. Become a part of the campus community by joining student clubs and organizations, engaging in student activities, watching Whitecaps sporting events (baseball and softball) and devoting time to doing community services as part of the College’s service and learning initiative.
The Galveston College catalog is the primary source for information about academic policies and regulations that govern students’ academic life. The Special Services Guidelines answer questions specifically about special services. As a student of Galveston College you are responsible for knowing and abiding by the policies and regulations set forth in the college catalog. The catalog is accessible on-line at www.gc.edu/instructional.
All information contained in this Special Services Guidelines and Information packet is subject to change without notice.
The Galveston College Special Services Office provides students with assistance and information as required by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1972 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
Additional information is available through the Office of Special Services located in the Counseling Center located on the first floor of Moody Hall.
