Service Animal Information

According to Oklahoma state law, A "service animal" means any dog or miniature horse that is individually trained, or in training, to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual or other mental disability. "Service animals" are allowed to accompany persons with disabilities indoors on Tulsa Community College (TCC) campuses. A "support/assistance animal" is an animal that provides emotional or other support that alleviates one or more identified symptoms or effects of a person's disability. "Support/assistance animals" are not considered service animals and are not allowed to accompany anyone indoors on Tulsa Community College campuses. While "Service animals" include dogs and miniature horses, "support/assistance animals" include other species as well. The work or tasks performed by a "service animal" must be directly related to the person's disability. Such animals might guide individuals with impaired vision, alert individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing to intruders or sounds, pull a wheelchair, or fetch items used in daily living. The provision of emotional support/assistance, well-being, comfort, or companionship does not constitute work or tasks for this definition. The Service Animal Policy may be found in the student handbook.
