Academic Accommodations

At Mid-State, reasonable and effective accommodations are defined as adjustments or modifications provided in the academic setting that give students with a disability equal access to education and the ability to participate. Students with a disability must be able to meet the admission, program, and course completion requirements of Mid-State with or without reasonable accommodations.

Students should contact the Disability Services Office as soon as possible since time is needed to coordinate accommodations.

  • Alternate format for textbooks
  • Assistive technology
  • Captioned videos
  • Accessible classroom
  • Testing accommodations
  • Interpreter
  • Notetaking services and/or audio recording lectures

Additional services may include:

  • Career exploration and advising
  • Transition services
  • Remedial education
  • Schedule modification
  • Service coordination with other agencies
  • Study/learning skills training

Attendant care or personal services are not available through Mid-State.
