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.
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.
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.
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, https://www.mayland.edu/student-life/student-code-conduct.
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.
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.
