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 documented disability may be eligible for accommodations that provide equal access to educational programs at MCLA. Students are advised to contact that Disability Resource Office at 413-662-5318 or stop by CSSE, Eldridge Hall to schedule an appointment. In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Disability Resource Office will work with students to coordinate reasonable accommodations. 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 plan 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.
