NSCC's COVID-19 response: view updates

Accessibility Services

We work collaboratively with students, faculty and staff to ensure that the learning environment at NSCC is accessible.

If you experience barriers, and have a diagnosed physical, mental health, chronic health or learning challenge, you may receive academic accommodations to remove or reduce your barriers. To begin, you will need to fill out a Student Intake Form and provide documentation from a regulated health care professional. This information will be used in planning for appropriate accommodations and supports to meet your needs. Many supports take time to plan and arrange, so the sooner you contact us, the better.

We can help you:

  • Identify any barriers you may be facing and find ways to address them
  • Request academic accommodations
  • Use assistive technology to help read textbooks, write papers and study
  • Access tutoring or note-taking
  • Obtain electronic textbooks
  • Apply for funding for disability-related equipment or services
  • Arrange physical access to our buildings, classrooms, learning spaces and equipment
  • Explore additional resources on campus and in the community
  • Learn and practice self-advocacy skills

You'll also find a full range of learning supports and services at NSCC to help you be successful in your studies:

  • Libraries
  • Writing Centre
  • Tutoring
  • Peer Assisted Learning Supports (PALS)
  • Learning Support Resource Guides
  • Assistive Technology supports
  • English as an Additional Language (EAL) supports
