North Arkansas College is committed to ensure that all academic classes, programs, services and activities of North Arkansas College are accessible to otherwise qualified students with disabilities in accordance with the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The college is committed to full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act of 2008 (ADA), the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and subsequent state and federal legislation.
  2. Academic accommodations for admitted students are coordinated by the disabilities services coordinator (DSC). Students are responsible to disclose disabilities to the DSC, provide appropriate documentation, and follow established procedures to use their accommodation plan. Accommodation plans are developed based on needs and are intended to ensure access to all aspects of the learning community.
  3. The need for accommodation is verified by the Disability Coordinator based on documentation and student interviews.
  4. Once a disability has been disclosed and substantiated, the student and the Disabilities Coordinator collaborate to develop an individualized Educational Access Plan.
  5. Student disability and accommodation records are protected by FERPA.
  6. In order to maintain an environment that is safe and conducive to learning, behavior that is deemed to be dangerous, damaging, harassing or otherwise disruptive to the College community is not allowable, even when that behavior is a symptom or is associated with a disability.  For this reason, all students, including those with disabilities, are responsible to comply with the Student Code of Conduct.
