TABE Waiver Request

Students who have a documented disability preventing them from successfully completing any area of the TABE exit requirement may apply for a waiver.  Schedule an appointment with the Campus Disability Support Services Coordinator for information on this process. For contact information see DSS Contacts on the main menu.
