Disabilities Services

There are scholarships available to students with disabilities. Get more details at AffordableColleges.com.

WITCC strives to make reasonable accommodations for eligible persons with disabilities to ensure equal and fair access to programs, educational opportunities and activities.

If you are a person with disabilities wishing to attend Western Iowa Tech, you must follow WITCC policy and register with Disability Services. You will need to complete an accommodation request form and provide current documentation of the disability(ies) from a qualified professional or organization. Additional evaluation may be requested. Students who require accommodations to take the Computerized Placement Test (CPT) will also need to follow this procedure in advance of taking the test.
