Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Policy
As part of its mission, Mid-Plains Community College seeks to ensure that no person who meets the academic and technical standards requisite for admission to, and continued enrollment at the college is denied benefits or subjected to discrimination solely by reason of his or her disability. Toward this end, and in compliance with federal laws, the college both accepts and provides reasonable accommodations for qualified students with documentation.
Both MPCC and the student have responsibilities to ensure equal educational opportunities. While the college stands ready to make accommodations, it is the student's responsibility to avail him or herself of all available services.
Disabled students with special needs should contact the college campus ADA coordinator identified below. Services for students with disabilities (learning, ADD, ADHD, physical or psychological) may include special accommodations, tutoring and counseling. With the student's written permission, the counselor can also be a liaison to instructors regarding the student's special needs. Documentation of the disability(ies) by a qualified professional, completed within the last three (3) years, must be on file with the college in order to initiate services. The college will make a good faith effort to provide an effective accommodation to the student with a disability; however, it need not provide the most comprehensive or expensive accommodation requested by the student.
