NOVA is committed to ensuring all students have an opportunity to pursue a college education regardless of the presence or absence of a disability. NOVA makes reasonable accommodations in providing course, program, and building modification, and/or auxiliary aids and services in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008. No academically qualified student with a disability will be denied access to or participation in the services, programs, and activities of the College.
Welcome to NOVA's Disability Support Services
Students Requesting Accommodations for the First Time
Read the Disability Documentation Guidelines. An IEP or 504 Plan alone may not be sufficient. If you still have questions after reading the guidelines, contact the Disability Support Services counselor at your campus. Begin the application process by clicking the Start Here button below. Watch the instructional video and follow the directions carefully.
If you are a returning student, and wish to renew your accommodations, click the Renew Accommodations button below. Watch the instructional video and follow the directions carefully.
Visiting and Consortium Students
A letter of accommodations from your home college should be sufficient documentation. During your intake appointment, the Disability Support Services counselor will let you know if additional documentation is needed. Begin the application process by clicking the Start Here button below. Watch the instructional video and follow the directions carefully.
Disability Support Services will ONLY contact you through your NOVA student email account.
