MCLA Students with Disabilities Policy Statement




MCLA: Students with Disabilities

Any student who believes he or she may need an accommodation based on the impact of a psychological, physical, auditory, medical or cognitive/learning disability may be eligible for accommodations that provide equal access to educational programs at MCLA. Students should contact Katie Sutton, Learning Specialist in the Center for Student Success and Engagement (CSSE) as soon as possible at 413-662-5318 or k.sutton@mcla.edu. In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Katie coordinates reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities. Students who wish to request accommodations should do so within the first four weeks of the semester. Once accommodations have been determined, the student will provide a copy of his/her accommodation worksheet to each individual instructor. Students must fulfill all course requirements in order to receive passing grades in their classes, with or without reasonable accommodations. Please note that accommodations cannot be granted retroactively.
