The Metropolitan Community Colleges is committed to the full inclusion of individuals with disabilities and to the principle of individual rights and responsibilities as required by Federal law (Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act), State Law (Missouri Human Rights), and MCC Board Policy (3.25060), and also as a part of our MCC district mission to “provide access to affordable, responsive, quality education and training opportunities in a supportive and caring environment that values diverse constituencies.” To this end, MCC policies and procedures ensure that persons with a disability will not, on the basis of that disability, be denied full and equal access to programs (academic, extra-curricular, or employment), activities, benefits, or services offered by MCC.
The Access Office at each college location collaborates with faculty, staff, students, and the community to promote equal access to all educational programs, classes, activities and services provided within the community college system. Students or college visitors who have a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act are eligible for services.
To qualify for services students must identify themselves to the Access Office and provide written documentation of their disability from a qualified professional. Please apply as early as possible prior to the start of each semester so that accommodations can be arranged in a timely manner.
An Access Office is located at:
*Business & Technology College students are served by the Maple Woods Access Office.
