Disability Services Accommodations
Northcentral Technical College provides academic accommodations to students with disabilities to ensure equal access to higher education.
An accommodations card and pre-approval is required to use these accommodations. An accommodations card is valid through the summer semester of the academic year in which they are issued. In order to use the pre-approved resources, students will need to complete an accommodations card renewal form if their card has expired.
