  • Referrals for tutoring to the Learning Center
  • Alternative testing arrangements
  • Coordination of services such as:
    • Captionists

    • Note-takers

Procedures for Requesting Academic and Testing Accommodations

Services:

  • Alternate format textbooks: Contact Special Services as soon as possible if you will need an alternate format of your textbook. It may take a month or more to obtain materials in alternate format.
  • Public Communication Service: Macomb uses a Sorenson VRS Unit.

Campus Accessibility:

In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American Disability Act of 1991, academic accommodations will be provided to students who have a documented disability.

  • Our buildings are equipped with special runways, elevators, handrails, and specially constructed facilities, to make student movement and use easier.
  • Elevator keys are available through the College Police Department at both campuses.
  • For access to Special Parking, please contact your local Secretary of State for a special parking sticker.

The Special Populations Program is a network of support to help displaced homemakers, single parents, single-pregnant women and other members of eligible population groups find direction in their lives and obtain the job skills necessary to provide financial support and develop independence.
