The College seeks to comply fully with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The 504 coordinator works with the programs to assist the faculty in understanding and implementing accommodations.
Students with disabilities should have documentation of their disability sent to the campus Director of Accessibility and Disability Services, Debbie Coleman, Ferguson Center, 831-4170, and set up an appointment as soon as they arrive on campus. Failure to do so could delay accommodations. Services and accommodations are determined individually based on disability documentation. It is only through a student's voluntary disclosure of their disability and request for accommodation that MVC can support disability needs.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, all qualified students with a disability (as defined under the law) are eligible for reasonable accommodations in the academic environment that enables the qualified individual to enjoy equal access to the college's programs, services or activities. The college is not required to provide any aid or service that would result in a fundamental alteration to the nature of the program.
