Prerequisite Science Courses Academic Accommodations
ֱ̲ will use all reasonable efforts to accommodate students with disabilities to provide them with education equity in order to meet the standards of the program. At the request of a student, reasonable accommodations will be provided with respect to the documented disability that affects the student’s ability in an academic setting.
Students will need to submit medical documentation from their licensed health-care professional (See process document below for list of approved professionals). This documentation will be kept in confidence (separate from the student’s academic file) by Accessibility Services and used solely to assess requests for accommodations.
Once students have provided the appropriate documentation, Accessibility Services will assess and will then receive an email from Accessibility Services, outlining any approved accommodations.
Please note that the accommodations granted will only be valid until the end of August. Meaning that if you still require these accommodation you will need to contact the Accessibility Services to obtain a renewal. Further, the accommodations granted for the Prerequisite Science Course will not be transferred to the degree program. It is the responsibility of the student to contact Accessibility Services should they require continued accommodation in the degree program.
The deadline to apply for accommodations is by the end of Week 4. Please ensure any applications for accommodations are submitted before this time. This document outlines the accommodation application process for PSC students (PDF).
Accessibility Services
Students can schedule a confidential appointment with Pouneh Kharabi, Accessibility and Student Support Advisor, at accessibilityservices@ccnm.edu.
