What is the Accessibility Office?
The Accessibility Office (TAO) provides accommodations to all students with documented disabilities, accommodations at all campuses at Bucks. All accommodations are tailored to the individual needs of each student based on their documentation presented to TAO. All accommodations are in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. TAO is here to assist all students that have any qualifying, documented disability. TAO will assist students in equal access to courses, the campus and all activities on the college campus.
If a student, faculty member, staff member or visitor to the campus encounters a physical barrier at any campus location, we would like to hear from you. Please complete the online form below. This will ensure that every member of the community has access to all physical spaces where Bucks County Community College provides programming.

Bucks County Community College’s policy is that all College web content and interfaces will meet applicable federal and state law (including the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act and amendments). To be compliant with the ADA, a person with a disability must be able to independently acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services within the same timeframe as individuals without disabilities, with substantially equivalent ease of use.
