Registering for Disability Support
Students who have previously established eligibility for disability support services must visit the LRC each semester in order to continue their programs of support. We recommend that students visit no later than the first week of classes.
Incoming students and those seeking first-time accommodations must visit the LRC as soon as possible to register, submit documentation, and establish eligibility. Once documentation has been reviewed, and a student deemed eligible for services, the LRC can begin a formal program of support in cooperation with the student, professors, and/or College staff.

- Physical Disabilities, Including Hearing and Vision Loss

Support Services for Students Who Have Disabilities, Including Housing Accomodations
In addition to the "Services for All MICA Students" (below) students who have disabilities may be entitled to classroom and other accommodations. These supports may include modification to the examination environment, reading services, and note-taking services.
Some students may be eligible for housing modifications.
Support Services for All MICA Students
All students may utilize the LRC's assistive technology. These software packages aid students with reading and writing assignments. In addition, all students may meet with an LRC learning specialist for one-on-one assistance with time management, reading skills, study skills and other challenges.

Advice for Incoming Students
Transitioning from high school to postsecondary is a difficult and stressful process for most individuals. For individuals with disabilities, it can be a daunting task. Is it the same as high school? Whom should I speak to? Am I still under IDEA?
