DISABILITY ACCOMMODATIONS

Northeast Mississippi Community College provides reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities through the Office of Disability Accommodations (ODA).

Students must self-identify in order to receive accommodations.  Self-identification may occur through accessing a copy of the on-line Disabilities Application or a hardcopy may be obtained from the Counseling Center in Waller Hall.

Students will be assigned to a Disabilities Counselor for development of a reasonable accommodation’s plan.  ODA will work with the student to decide the most reasonable accommodations based on disability.

The Office of Disability Accommodations is committed to creating a positive campus environment where students with disabilities are encouraged to pursue careers on the basis of personal interest and ability.  Reasonable accommodations are offered in accordance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The ODA is located within the Counseling Center in Waller Hall.  To make an appointment with the ODA Counselor/Coordinator, please call 662-720-7313.
