Under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, all qualified students with a disability (as defined under the law) are eligible for reasonable accommodations in the academic environment that enables the qualified individual to enjoy equal access to the college’s programs, services or activities. The college is not required to provide any aid or service that would result in a fundamental alteration to the nature of the program.
Accessibility Services provides coordination of support services and accommodations for all qualified students with disabilities. Through collaboration and support of the entire campus community, the Accessibility Services office ensures that all individuals have access to college life at its fullest. Services and accommodations are determined individually based on disability documentation.
North Central Missouri College is committed to providing equal access and opportunity to all campus programs and services to individuals with disabilities. We are devoted to create accessible, dynamic learning environments focused on the needs of our students. Students with disabilities are required to meet the same academic standards as other students at the college. It is only through a student’s voluntary disclosure of their disability and request for accommodations that NCMC can support disability needs. Students who have a disability and wish to make a request for disability related accommodations or services must do so through the Accessibility Services office. Students are encouraged to meet with the Accessibility Services Coordinator prior to the upcoming semester. Once eligibility is determined, appropriate accommodations, based on the submitted documentation are put in place. Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis. Students are able to self-identify by contacting the Accessibility Services office.
