Disability Services

Welcome to Disability Services!

Disability Services provides confidential support and facilitates reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities. We work with MCTC faculty and staff to remove barriers and promote equal access to college programs, services, activities and policies for students with documented disabilities.

Accommodations and Services

Students meet one-on-one with a disability specialist for an in-take appointment. The specialist reviews the student’s disability documentation, discusses disability-related barriers with the student and then determines reasonable accommodations. The student contacts the specialist each semester to receive an accommodation letter to give to instructors.

What are reasonable accommodations? Reasonable accommodations are academic adjustments made to courses, programs or policies. The purpose of accommodations is to remove or minimize disability-related barriers. Reasonable accommodations must not compromise standards or fundamentally alter essential elements of a course, program or policy. In most situations, reasonable accommodations are not retroactive.

"When I started college, I didn't know what I wanted to study or what my skill level was. The Career Services staff helped me understand my strengths, areas for improvement, how to develop work ethics and how to network. I was able to drawn on their experience and knowledge base to get ahead in life."
