Student Accommodations and Assistance
Center for Advisement
The mission of the Center for Advisement is to promote academic excellence and encourage self-directed learning. CASS will academically advise freshmen and students who have not declared a major and provide programs and services to promote student success.
If you find that you are struggling with stress, feeling depressed or anxious, having difficulty choosing a major or career, or have time management difficulties which are adversely impacting your successful progress at UTC, please contact the Counseling Center at 425-4438 or go to the Counseling Center for more information.
Disability Resource Center
If you are a student with a disability (e.g. physical, learning, psychiatric, vision, hearing, etc.) and think that you might need special assistance or a special accommodation in this class or any other class, call the Disability Resource Center (DRC) at 425-4006 or come by the office, 108 University Center.

Office of Student Outreach and Support (SOS)
The Office of Student Outreach & Support (SOS) advocates and supports students experiencing challenges in their personal and/or academic lives. SOS staff help students navigate University administrative processes; connect with University and community resources; and develop coping, resiliency, and self-advocacy skills. Referrals can be made by students, faculty, and staff. Additionally, students can refer themselves as needed. To make a referral, submit a Community Member of Concern Referral Form at www.utc.edu/soc. Individuals may also contact SOS by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (423) 425-4301.
Additionally, SOS manages Scrappy’s Cupboard, UTC’s food pantry. Scrappy’s Cupboard is free, anonymous, and no questions asked. Students needing support ranging from one meal to a week of supplies should visit Scrappy’s Cupboard. For more information, visit www.utc.edu/scrappyscupboard.
Faculty members have the responsibility to help create a safe learning environment on our campus. To accomplish this, faculty have a mandatory reporting obligation and are required to share information with the University regarding sexual misconduct, relationship violence or stalking that is disclosed during the performance of their duties. Students may speak to someone confidentially by contacting Survivor Advocacy Services (SAS), located in the Women’s Center at (423) 425-5648 (M-F, 8-5). SAS may be contacted after hours by contacting UTCPD at (423) 425-4357 and asking for the advocate on call.
