Examples of academic accommodations include:
Medicine Hat College (MHC) is committed to providing access and supports to diverse learners and created a stand-alone policy on this topic in 2017.
Policy SD-05 and its related procedures (PR-SD-05-01) are available through the college’s policy webpage.
The purpose of this policy is to confirm and define the rights and responsibilities of MHC, its employees, and students with documented disabilities with respect to academic accommodation at MHC. The college will provide a supportive learning environment for students with documented disabilities while maintaining the academic integrity of the programs.
The first step for anyone who may need to access the accommodations and support services available through the accessibility services office at MHC is to schedule an appointment with the accessibility services coordinator at least 2 months (if possible) before the commencement of classes. Early identification and planning are critical to a successful academic career at MHC.
