Northcentral Technical College provides academic accommodations to students with disabilities to ensure equal access to higher education.
Disability Services (DS) works individually with students who qualify for these services through an accommodations process which provides students who are receiving college credit through NTC with the resources they need to fully participate in all aspects of learning.
Get Started With Accommodations
Students must first be approved for an accommodations card and a customized set of available accommodations before requesting use of these accommodations.
Step 1: Submit Accommodations Card Request
Students can begin the accommodations process at any time by completing the accommodations card request form.Request Accommodations Card
Step 2: Provide Documentation
To qualify for academic accommodations, students must provide documentation from qualified professionals with credentials appropriate to the diagnosis. After completion of the accommodations card request form, students will receive an email from the disability services team outlining your next steps.
Step 3: Attend Consultation
After the accommodations card request is made and documentation is submitted, a member of DS will schedule a one-on-one consultation to discuss the accommodations that students are eligible to receive and to approve a customized accommodations plan. Students are then issued an accommodations card which must be presented to instructors so the approved accommodations can be provided for each class.
After presenting the accommodations card to instructors, students then request the assistive technology or accommodations they will need for each class. Most requests can be fulfilled within three business days, however DS recommends requesting accommodations four weeks prior to the start of the semester so that they are in place when students begin their classes.Use Accommodations
In addition to the approved accommodations, additional resources in which an accommodations card and pre-approval are not necessary are available to students.
Accommodations Card Renewal
Accommodations cards are valid for the academic year in which they are issued and can be presented to instructors for courses during the fall semester, Winterim, spring semester and through the summer semester.
After July 1, students can renew accommodations cards for the upcoming academic year by completing an accommodation card renewal form. If a current accommodations card is lost or misplaced, students can request that a new card is issued by filling out the Misplaced Card form.
If adjustments are made to a student’s accommodations while they are completing college courses through NTC, a new consultation can be requested and the accommodations process begins again.
