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.
The Disability Services office provides disability consultation, advocacy and the coordination of support services and accommodations for all qualified students with disabilities. Services and accommodations are determined individually based on disability documentation.
Missouri Valley College is committed to promoting the full participation of all qualified students with disabilities in all aspects of campus life. Students with disabilities are required to meet the same academic standards as other students at the college. It is only through a student's voluntary disclosure of their disability and request for accommodations that MVC can support disability needs. Students who have a disability and wish to make a request for disability related accommodations or services must do so through the Disability Services office. Students are encouraged to register with the Disability Services office prior to arrival on campus for the upcoming semester. Once eligibility is determined, appropriate accommodations, based on the submitted documentation are put in place. Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis.
