Getting Started with Learning Accommodations

1 – 2 – 3 – Process

  1. Contact the Learning Accommodations Center 6 to 8 weeks before your semester starts and ask for a Request for Services Meeting (RSM/Intake) – this meeting will last about one hour. You will be asked about the nature of your disability and your abilities in reading, writing, math, test-taking, concentration, and memory.
    Email: lacenter@necc.mass.edu
    Voice: 978-556-3654
  2. Fill out an Application For Services (PDF, Opens in a new window)
  3. Bring copies, not originals, of disability documentation. These should include a stated diagnosis of your disability such as:
    • Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder
    • Brain Injury
    • Learning Disability
    • Low vision/Blind/Legally Blind
    • Autism Spectrum or Asperger’s Syndrome
    • Physical Disability
    • Chronic Illness
    • Seizure Disorder
    • Psychiatric or Neurobiological Disorder

After the Request for Services Meeting has been completed and documentation has been submitted, it is reviewed by a professional team at the Learning Accommodations Center and a specific accommodation plan will be recommended.

Please Note: Accommodations are not retroactive. Accommodations will only apply from the date of the Semester Accommodations Meeting, going forward. Accommodations approved will not apply to course work or tests that were required to be completed prior to this.
