The MVCC Office for Accessibility Resources (OAR) provides, coordinates, and facilitates federally mandated accommodations and services to MVCC students with disabilities, whatever those disabilities might be. This includes, but is not limited to, individuals who are blind, deaf, learning disabled, mobility impaired, those with chronic health-related impairments such as epilepsy or diabetes, and those with mental health and substance-related disabilities.
The services provided depend on the individual involved. In some cases, this might simply mean providing someone to talk to about concerns, advice about scheduling courses, or information about community service providers. At other times, it could involve the provision of enlarged print materials or electronic textbooks, assistance in locating a sign language interpreter, or the coordination of alternate testing arrangements. In all cases, the goal of the office is to help ensure that students and others with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate, to compete, and to succeed at MVCC.
Our Office is located in Francis A. Wilcox Hall (Formerly IT Building) - Room 129 A-E (Inside the Learning Commons)
