Welcome to CFCC. The Disability Support Services office, a part of the Division of Student Services, is committed to providing support to students with disabilities. The office works with all areas of the college to ensure that programs, facilities and activities are accessible to all students.

Students who have a disability (ie physical, mental, learning, vision or hearing) are welcome to contact the Disability Support Services office to arrange a confidential discussion. Appointments may be scheduled by calling 910-362-7800 or walk-in appointments are welcome.

This site is designed to provide current and prospective students, as well as faculty, with information related to disability services. Please explore the links to learn more about receiving accommodations/services.

If you have difficulty accessing information from the DSS web pages, please call 910-362-7800 for assistance.

Mission Statement

Cape Fear Community College will be responsible for assuring that students with disabilities have equal, effective and meaningful access to all programs, goods and services through the use of nondiscriminatory policies and procedures, and the provision of reasonable accommodations, auxiliary aids, and services as indicated necessary by the functional limitations of a qualified disability.

Services are provided in compliance with The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and its attachments, and the Americans with Disabilities Act as amended in 2008 (ADAAA).

Seizure Disorders

Students with a history of seizures should register with DSS and provide medical documentation to ensure appropriate protocol is followed in the event of a seizure.
