You are here: HomeAssistance for Students with Disabilities

Mid-South Christian College encourages students with disabilities to participate fully in all academic programs and student activities. In accordance with the provisions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the college seeks to provide students with disabilities “reasonable accommodations” needed to ensure equal access to those programs and activities. While the college provides several services to support the academic work of all its students, including tutoring, additional accommodations can be made specifically for students with a disability.

 

Students with disabilities who require assistance should contact the Director of Student Services
(901-375- 4400 Ext. 115).


Notification of Disabilities: 

It is the responsibility of the student to notify the school of his or her disability and to follow the process for requesting appropriate auxiliary services and academic adjustments.

  1. Students entering Mid-South Christian College (MSCC) should submit a written request for disability services to the Director of Student Services prior to matriculation at MSCC.
    A current student who discovers the need for accommodations may submit a request at any point during his or her academic career.
  2. Along with the written request for services, the student must provide documentation of the disability. This documentation must be prepared by a medical doctor, psychologist, or other qualified diagnostician as appropriate.
  3. Complete documentation should include a diagnosis of the current disability, the date of this diagnosis, how the diagnosis was reached, the credentials of the diagnosing professional, how this diagnosis affects a major life activity, and how the disability affects the student’s academic performance.
  4. If available, the student should submit other documentation such as an Individualized Educational Program (IEP) or a section 504 plan from high school. MSCC prefers these plans to be dated within the past three years of submission.
