Special Needs

The Special Needs Office of RTC offers assistance to individuals with disabilities when choosing educational and vocational goals, building self-esteem and increasing their occupational potential. We offer a wide range of support services and accommodations which increases the potential of individuals with exceptional education needs to successfully complete Associate Degree and Technical Certificate programs. Every effort is made to individually and appropriately serve students to enable them to attain success and reach their goals.

Approximately 10-15% of the population at RTC are individuals with exceptional education needs that require special services. RTC's Special Needs Office serves about 160 students per year.

Our staff is made up of three individuals who provide a wide range of support services and accommodations.
