Students with disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations at Great Falls College MSU which allow them to reach their performance potential in their coursework. Each student who chooses to seek accommodations will meet with the Director of Disability Services, and together they will determine what accommodations to request based on the needs of the student and the demands of the course. Available accommodations include, but are not limited to:
  • Extended test time
  • Distraction-free testing environment
  • Various other test accommodations
  • Adaptive computer equipment/software
  • Note takers
  • Sign Language interpreters
  • Ergonomic equipment
  • Preferential classroom seating
  • Tape recording lectures

Exam proctors are available to assist with alternative exams, but arrangements must be made at least one week in advance. All accommodation requests are subject to instructor approval, and no instructor will be asked to compromise the integrity of the course. If issues or concerns arise surrounding an accommodation request, the instructor, the student and the Director of Disability Services work together to find a solution acceptable to everyone.

Temporary Disabilities

Students with temporary disabling conditions may request reasonable accommodations for a limited amount of time. Students may request special arrangements with each instructor, and if the instructor allows course modifications, the student may request the temporary use of Disability Services resources (e.g. testing room/proctor; assistive technology) as available. Such requests must be accompanied by medical documentation of the temporary condition, and will only be granted as resources are available. In all cases, students registered with Disability Services will receive top priority for use of resources.
