Steps for Setting Up Needs Assistance
APPLY for Disability Services
to Disability Services (this application is separate from the admissions application
and should be turned in to the Disability Services).
Gather required documentation (medical records, mental health records) to demonstrate
that you have a disability and submit it to the Disability Services office. Students
can sign a release to allow staff to obtain their records if they do not have a copy.
Students seeking accommodations from Mott Community College have the responsibility
of providing current documentation of disability and paying the costs associated with
diagnosis, evaluation, or testing.Please note:
An Individual Education Plan (IEP) is generally not sufficient documentation.
Student meets with a Disability Services Specialist to review their application
and documentation and talk about their needs.
Once documentation is received for a student, and the student has met with a Disability
Services Specialist, the Disability Services Specialist will review all information
and complete a needs assessment. The Disability Services Specialist develops a plan
for accommodations and services that aligns with the student's documentation, requests
and relevant laws. The plan for accommodations and services is then submitted to the
Director of the Student Success Center & Disability Services for approval.
