Services for Students with Disabilities
At NCC, we’re all about access. And the best way to make sure that happens is to provide our students with the resources they need to reach their potential and achieve their goals.
At the Center for Students with Disabilities, you’ll find a wide range of support services. No matter what the service may be, our mission is to help students overcome obstacles, build confidence, and achieve success.
Our mission is to serve students with documented physical/medical, visual, learning, emotional, or hearing disabilities who have been accepted at NCC. We provide them with resources and support to gain confidence, become independent, develop learning strategies and skills, and capitalize on their strengths.
Our services include academic, career, and personal counseling; priority registration; appropriate classroom and testing accommodations; sign language interpreters; adapted computer access; and cultural programming.
All of our counselors, tutors, specialists, advisors, and support staff have one thing in common—a passion for helping students achieve their goals.
