Disability Services

 

North Central Kansas Technical College is dedicated to providing equal opportunities in post-secondary education to academically qualified students with disabilities who demonstrate a reasonable expectation of College success. Students with disabilities attending NCK Tech are integrated as completely as possible into the College atmosphere.

North Central Kansas Technical College does not offer a specialized curriculum for students with disabilities. The College requests input from students to assess individual needs and determines what resources are available for meeting those needs.

North Central Kansas Technical College acknowledges that traditional methods, programs and services are not always appropriate or sufficient to accommodate the limitations experienced by some qualified persons with disabilities. When a student’s disability prevents him/her from fulfilling a course requirement through conventional procedures, consideration will be given to alternatives, keeping in mind that academic standards must be maintained.

Students requesting services are required to submit documentation to determine eligibility in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). The documentation provided to NCK Tech should be medical or other diagnostic information that confirms his/her disability and limitations, and should be current (within the past three years).

Each student is expected to make timely and appropriate disclosures and requests, at least four weeks in advance of a course, program, or activity for which accommodation is requested (or as soon as realistically possible).
