SUMMARY OF RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES
Welcome from the Disability Support Services
Welcome, to Meridian Community College’s (MCC) web page for Disability Support Services. The purpose of this site is to provide information regarding disability support services offered at MCC. The college and staff are dedicated to assisting you achieve your educational goals through making the college’s facilities and programs accessible for all people. Disability Support Services have been provided at MCC for 14+ years, which shows our dedication and support for students with documented disabilities.
Consistent with the mandates of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Meridian Community College is committed to providing individuals with disabilities equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from its educational programs and services. The Coordinator of the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Support Services has been designated to coordinate the College’s efforts to comply with and carry out its responsibilities under these laws.
The CTE Support Services Coordinator is located in 150 Ivy Hall. The telephone number is 484-8777 and the e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. The office serves as the central contact point for students with disabilities. The goal of the CTE Support Services is to provide a comprehensive accessible environment to ensure an individual is viewed on the basis of ability, not disability. Students are seen on an individual basis to determine accommodations needed for the student to be successful. In addition to coordinating and providing services for students with documented disabilities, Disability Support provide guidance and technical assistance to faculty and staff working with students.
Students with disabilities must self-identify to receive accommodations and special services. Self-identification involves the student registering with the CTE Support Services Office and presenting appropriate documentation verifying the disability. Self-identification is voluntary. However, CTE Support Services can be of service to students only to the extent that their individual needs are made known. Students and prospective students are encouraged to make early contact with the CTE Support Service Coordinator.
