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.
