Disability Notice

Metropolitan Community College complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act which prohibit discrimination in admission or access to its programs based on disability. Each MCC campus has an Disability Support Services (DSS) office that provides special services for students with documented disabilities. Arrangements can be made for aids and adjustments to help ensure equal access to programs and services.

The campus DSS office also has information regarding the existence and location of services, activities, and facilities that are accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities.
