Connect With the Services You Need to Succeed at NECC
If you are a student with documented disabilities or are Deaf or Hard of Hearing, the Learning Accommodations Center can connect you to the services you need to succeed at NECC.
The Learning Accommodations Center, located on both the Haverhill and Lawrence Campuses, determines the types of resources that will provide equal access to students with a documented disability who are enrolled in credit or noncredit courses.
NOTE: Students who have a disability but do not anticipate a need for accommodations or services while at NECC are also encouraged to register with the LA Center.
Disability related documentation is kept strictly confidential, and students can present documentation without requesting services or accommodations. Should an unanticipated need for services or accommodations arise, the LA Center can begin to assist the student without delay if their disability related documentation is already on file.
