4. Academic Adjustment for Students with Disabilities

MCNY is committed to complying by making reasonable accommodations in its academic programs, thus insuring maximum participation by all students with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations and academic assistance are provided to MCNY students with disabilities registered with the Office of Student Services. Students with disabilities must complete a Request for Academic Adjustment Application Form available from the Student Services Office. 

Documentation of disability from a qualified medical or other licensed practitioner is required at this time. Specific guidelines for disability documentation are available from the Student Services Office.  Accommodations are individually determined according to documented need.

Some more typical accommodations include:

  • Test accommodations: This may include lengthening the time required to take an exam or providing a private room for testing;
  • Tutorial services: A specific plan is developed for each student;
  • Referrals, where appropriate and possible.
