WHY PROVIDE
ACCOMMODATIONS?
In Post-Secondary Education:
No qualified individual with a disability, on the basis of a
disability, may be
• excluded from participation in,
• denied benefits of, or
• otherwise be subjected to discrimination
Under any program, service, or activity which
• is operated by a public entity (ADA) or
• which receives or benefits from federal financial assistance (504)
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
  Students who have a documented chronic disability
  that substantially limits them in one or more major
  life activities and who are otherwise academically
  qualified




                                                        19
    WHAT DO FACULTY PROVIDE?
 Appropriate academic adjustments and auxiliary aids
  and services necessary to afford a student with a
  disability an equal opportunity to participate in the
  school’s programs and services
 Complete confidentiality in regards to the student’s
  disability




                                                          20
          HOW DO FACULTY DO THIS?
 Review the Memorandum of Accommodation (MOA)
  provided to you by the student
 Discuss any questions or concerns regarding the
  accommodations with the student
 Contact the counselor that has signed the memorandum
  with additional questions
 Note: You may not ask the student any specific
  information regarding the nature of the disability. The
  counselor will provide the additional information on a
 need to know basis
 WHAT DO FACULTY NOT PROVIDE?
 We do not provide an accommodation that would
  fundamentally alter the nature of the course
 We do not compromise on requirements that are
  essential to the course or program
 We do not provide an accommodation that creates
  an undue financial or administrative burden
WHAT IF THERE IS NO MOA?
 If a student does not have an official College
  memorandum, accommodations should never be provided
 Disability Services Counselors are trained to review
  documentation and determine if accommodations are
  appropriate and which ones to provide
 Refer the student to the Counseling Center to learn more
  about the required medical documentation, to pick up an
  intake packet (also online), or to schedule an appointment
  with a Disability Counselor to discuss eligibility
 Refer students to the DS website for additional
  information: (http://www.nvcc.edu/current-
  students/disability-services/index.html)
  WHAT IF THE STUDENT DOES NOT HAVE CURRENT
  DOCUMENTATION OF THEIR DISABILITY?
 Unlike K – 12th grade, postsecondary schools are not
  required to pay for medical or psychological
  documentation of a disability
 Postsecondary schools are only required to provide
  accommodations to allow for equal access, if the student
  provides documentation to support the need for
  accommodations
 The student will have to pay for updated evaluations, if
  they do not have current documentation
 Disability Counselors can provide vendor resources for
  students
   WHAT ELSE SHOULD FACULTY
   CONSIDER?
 Some students may be unaware of whom to speak
  to and what to do if they have a disability
 A statement should be included on your syllabi
  referring students to a Disability Services
  Counselor
    Statement on your Syllabus
The College is committed to the goal of providing each
qualified student with an equal opportunity to pursue a
college education regardless of disability. Efforts will be
made to meet reasonable requests for services to students
with disabilities eligible under Section 504 of the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA). A student with disabilities is
encouraged to contact a counselor for Disability Services in
the Student Services or Counseling Center of their home
campus to discuss possible accommodations. A
Memorandum of Accommodation from the counselor must
be presented to the professor in order to receive
accommodations.
   ADDITIONALLY
 Possible status as a minor does not factor in the
  college’s process for determining eligibility for
  accommodations
 Students are subject to the same rules and policies as
  all students attending college
 Higher education is not bound by a student’s IEP
  from high school
