Disability Resources

MCLA is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities to ensure equal access to all MCLA programs. The Disability Resource Office located in the Center for Student Success and Engagement provides eligible students with individual support services. Services offered will vary from student to student based on the nature of the documented disability. 

In order to receive services, students must:

  1. Provide documentation of their disability
  2. Contact the Disability Resource Office to make an appointment
  3. Collaborate with us to develop an individualized accommodation plan. 

Typical Accommodations Provided at MCLA

Based on documentation, reasonable accommodations might include:
  • Priority Access Registration
  • Test Accommodations
  • Access to textbooks and course materials in alternative formats
  • Note takers or recording devices
  • Assistive Technology
  • On-Campus Housing Accommodations

*Please note that these represent some accommodations provided to MCLA students. Students’ needs are reviewed on an individual basis and specific accommodations will reflect each individual student.
