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 be made in person, via email, or via phone contact. After self-identification has occurred, the student must meet with the Disability Coordinator in Ramsey Hall to make a determination and to fill out the Disabilities Application. This application may be found at this link: diability-application, or a hard-copy may be obtained from the Counseling Center in Ramsey Hall. Appropriate documentation must be provided when applying for accommodations. Documentation must be diagnostic in nature. More information may be obtained by contacting Emily Pollard.

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 Ramsey Hall.  To make an appointment with the ODA Counselor/Coordinator, please call 662-720-7313.
