Disability Support Services Program
Disability Support Services(DSS)Program works to assist students with permanent or temporary disabilities to receive reasonable accommodations in academic and non-academic programs that provide them with an equal opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of student life at NMC. Counseling also undertakes efforts to increase awareness among NMC staff, faculty, and students of disability-related issues.
A Counselor works with each student to identify educational goals, provides accommodations as determined by documented need, connects students to various campus and community resources, and coordinates services for student support.
For students with documented disabilities, accommodations are provided to give equal access to education. Accommodations vary based on individual need and may include: access to assistive technology, such as TTY, tape recorders, magnifiers, etc.; extended test time, separate testing site; note takers, readers, scribes, and tutors; American Sign Language interpretation; classroom relocation; instructional materials provided in alternate formats; and priority registration.
