Americans with Disabilities Act

It is the policy of Mayland Community College to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and all federal and state laws concerning the application, admission, or other terms and conditions of educational programs for qualified students, student applicants and other participants of College-sponsored programs or services who have disabilities.


In accordance with the law and with sound ethical counseling practice, specific information regarding a student’s disability will not be shared with a third party, including faculty, without the student’s express permission to do so. It is the student’s right not to disclose specific information regarding their disability to their faculty.

Requesting Accommodations

Accommodations for Students

  • In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, students must disclose disabilities to the counselor in order for MCC to provide reasonable accommodations.
  • The student must complete a Disability Accommodation Request Form with the Office of Counseling and Disability Services.
  • The student must disclose the type of disability, the student’s limitations, and the current impact of the disability/medical condition to the counselor by completing a Disability Accommodation Request Form with the Office of Counseling and Disability Services. Accommodations should be requested at least two weeks in advance to give the disability counselor time to make arrangements. More complex accommodations, such as interpreters, must be made at least six (6) weeks in advance. Accommodations requested after that will be provided as soon as possible.
  • The student provides proof of the disability from a physician, psychologist or other appropriate professional stating the nature of the disability and recommendations for needed accommodations. The documentation must reflect the current impact of the disability. The only exception to this requirement is what is called the “reasonable man rule.” That is, if any reasonable person were to see a given student, they would concur that he was disabled. MCC’s staff is not able to diagnose disabilities. The documentation accepted at MCC may not suffice for universities or professional and certification exams.
  • The Director of Counseling and Disability Services will engage in an interactive process with the student to determine the accommodations.
  • The Director of Counseling and Disability Services approves and documents the reasonable accommodations that the College will provide as determined from the appropriate documentation (including accommodations that may be administered by the SOAR Program). All of the information is collected by the Director and filed with a copy of the approved accommodations.
  • The Director or counselor sends a Notification of Accommodations Form to the faculty (with the Director of the Counseling and Disability Service’s signed approval).
  • The student must request the accommodations prior to or at the beginning of each semester during which the student wishes to receive accommodations.

Technical Standards

Each program of study at MCC has its own set of technical standards. All students regardless of disability must meet the technical standards of a program with or without reasonable accommodations. Technical standards are available in the Office of Counseling and Disability Services.

Student Absences from Class

Regular class attendance is a student obligation. A student is responsible for all the work, including tests, homework, and in-class assignments for all class meetings. A reasonable number of absences from class for valid reasons (including disability-related medical situations) are approved only by the faculty on a case by case basis. Whenever possible, students should inform faculty prior to being absences.

Student Code of Conduct

All students, regardless of disability, must adhere to the MCC Student Code of Conduct. The Student Code of Conduct may be found in the MCC Catalog and on the MCC webpage,

Personal Aids and Services

MCC does not provide services of a personal nature. Personal attendants and individually prescribed devices are the responsibility of the student who has a disability and not of the college. For example, a reader may be provided as a testing accommodation, but the College does not provide readers for personal use or for help during individual study time.

Accessible Parking

Students displaying an accessible parking placard will find parking in designated areas. State parking placards can be obtained from the Department of Motor Vehicles in Raleigh, NC. Students having state placards are permitted to park in designated accessible parking spaces. Temporary accessible parking permits for the Visitor spaces are available for eligible students through the MCC Bookstore.

Service and Emotional Support Animals
