What Does "S.A.R." Mean?

"S.A.R." is an acronym for the Student Accessibility Resources Department at Gulf Coast State College.  The Mission and Purpose of this department is to help create a fair and inclusive learning environment through specific educational accommodations and support services guided by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. 

What Can S.A.R. Do For You?

The SAR team is here to assist you in your education, career and personal achievements/goals with equal access to all programs using both on-campus and off-campus resources.
