Accessibility Services

Mountwest is dedicated to serving all students and ensuring that students with disabilities are given equitable opportunities to succeed. Designated accessibility staff coordinate accommodations for qualified students with disabilities as they pursue their educational goals. They act as a liaison between students with disabilities and faculty. In order to be recognized as a student with a disability and receive the appropriate accommodations, you must be registered with the Accessibility Services Office.

Students must declare and provide appropriate documentation of their disability to this office in order to receive services.

Documentation of disability/disabilities are required to come from a psychiatrist, psychologist, or certified mental health professional (if applicable) a professional in the field, be submitted using the professional’s letterhead, and must include their address, phone number, and license numbers. Documentation must be no more than five years old and must state the following information:

1. Date of the most recent visit to diagnosing professional;
2. A clear statement of the diagnosis and the date of the original diagnosis;
3. A summary of diagnostic tests, methods, and/or criteria used to make the diagnosis including evaluation results and standardized test scores if applicable; and
4. Professional recommendation for accommodations.

PLEASE NOTE: IEP’s from K-12/county school districts are acceptable only on a case by case basis to request or declare accessibility/disability services.

Accommodations provided CANNOT fundamentally alter the nature of the course work.

Next Steps for Students

1. Bring the appropriate documentation to the Accessibility Services Office at Mountwest.

2. The student and the Accessibility Specialist will meet in order to discuss the accommodations for which the student is entitled.

3. The Accessibility Specialist will notify the student’s instructors in writing of the accommodations the student is entitled to receive. Students are encouraged to be independent and to be advocates for themselves in securing accommodations needed to maximize their learning experience. While appointments are appreciated, the office maintains an open-door policy, and students are encouraged to stop by at their convenience. Find accessibility staff at the One-Stop for Student Services in Room 101.
