Welcome to Disability Resources

Disability Resources facilitates equal access for students with disabilities, allowing full participation in educational programs, services, and campus activities through appropriate and reasonable accommodations while maintaining the academic standards and integrity of the college.

Disability Resources Information

Moraine Park offers reasonable accommodations and support services for students with disabilities at all campus sites.

A student with a disability is any person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, has a record of such impairment, or is regarded as having such an impairment. At the post-secondary level, a qualified student is a student with a disability who meets the academic and technical standards required for participation in the class, program, or activity.

Disabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Learning/cognitive
  • Physical/mobility
  • Visual/blind
  • Speech/language
  • Deaf/hard of hearing
  • Mental health
  • Orthopedic
  • Other health impairments

It is the responsibility of the student with the disability to self-identify to Disability Resources and to make accommodation requests as soon as possible. Students may provide disability documentation or documentation may be requested on your behalf.  Our Accommodation Specialists will discuss documentation requirements at a scheduled appointment.  Disability Resources may not be able to make an immediate decision and provide accommodations for students who wait until the course begins or until the day of a test.

A reasonable accommodation is determined by an Accommodation Specialist and is based upon the documentation provided/obtained.

Possible accommodations include, but are not limited to:

  • Note taking services (Glean)

We recommend starting the process early as timelines vary for each exam.

Disability Resources FAQ

Test Taking is not considered a major life activity therefore test anxiety, with no other clinical diagnosis, e.g. a generalized or severe anxiety disorder, is not eligible for test accommodation consideration.

Course examinations are delivered globally in English. English-as-a-second-language (ESL) is a life circumstance, not a disability, and as such, accommodations are not provided for this.

When you meet with the Accommodation Specialist at your New Student Appointment, we can discuss possible ways to gather past documentation or learn about how to get tested as an adult.

Without an approved accommodation, this will depend on each individual instructor’s course policy.

This will be dependent on if you have appropriate documentation. The Accommodation Specialist will communicate with you if and when your documentation is appropriate and set up a time to review your Accommodation Plan. It is recommended that you apply for accommodations as soon as possible.
