To Obtain Services
The process for obtaining reasonable and appropriate accommodations from the Disability Services office is the same for both on ground and online students. It includes two key steps that can be done in any order:
1) Submit documentation of your disability by mail or fax.
In general, all documentation should be typed on letterhead or be in report format and should include the following information:
- a clearly stated diagnosis of a disability the student's functional limitations in an academic environment
- the signature, printed name, title, and professional credentials of the evaluator
- the date of evaluation
- Certifying professional cannot be a family member of the individual requesting accommodations, based upon a disability, at NCC
2) Meet with a Disability Services specialist for a preservice appointment
- In preparation for your preservice meeting, it will be important for you to be able to discuss the following questions:
- Discuss your disability/disabilities.
