DISABILITY SERVICES FOR STUDENTS
NVCC is committed to serving persons with documented disabilities.
A goal of NVCC is that each qualified student has an equal opportunity
to pursue a college education regardless of the presence or absence
of a disability. To reach that goal, NVCC will make reasonable
accommodations in providing the course, program and building
modifications, and auxiliary services that are necessary to assure
equal access. NVCC assumes that if you are a student with a disability,
you will assist the College in identifying needed resources and
possible agency sources.
If you require any special services or accommodations, you
should contact the NVCC Counselor for Students With Disabilities
the campus of your choice at least two weeks prior to the beginning
of classes. To qualify for these services, you must provide
clear and specific evidence that a qualified professional
a formal diagnosis of a disability. Except in certain cases,
the documentation can be no older than three (3) years.
All information obtained in the diagnostic and
medical reports will be maintained and used in accordance with
confidentiality requirements. College policy reclassifies
any student not enrolled
for three full years as inactive. Disability documentation
records of inactive students will not be maintained.
Questions of compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation
Act of 1973, as amended, or the Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA), should be addressed to the director of Affirmative
and Legal Affairs.
Handicapped parking spaces are available at each campus.
A handicapped permit issued by the Department of Motor
Vehicles of any state
or the District of Columbia is required. The College
issue handicapped parking permits.
Each campus and the Extended Learning Institute has identified
one or more staff members to assist you. Areas of assistance
include counseling, enrollment, special academic
needs, and liaison with area rehabilitative service agencies.
