Disability Services

Providing learning opportunities for all students

If you are a student who has any kind of disability, whether learning, emotional, physical, or cognitive, and you need adjustments to access your (academic, social, or residential) college environment, Northeast welcomes you!

Northeast Disability Services Staff supports the college mission as we collaboratively work with faculty, staff, and students to identify reasonable accommodations, services, and resources that promote equity and inclusion both inside and outside of the classroom. We believe the ultimate indicator of our success is when students with a disability can access the college environments as seamlessly as do non-disabled students.

Students with a disability please contact one of the Disability Services Staff to request accommodations and support services. Students are encouraged to make accommodation requests as soon as possible to ensure prompt service.

Prospective Students, interested in attending Northeast and want to know more about Disability Services, please complete a simple form online or send an email to

Eligibility For Services

Students with a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), and its Amendment Act of 2008, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, are as capable as those without a disability to be college graduates.

A qualified student is a person with a disability who, with or without reasonable accommodations, meets the essential eligibility requirements for participating in college programs or activities.

Education and Employment Information

Employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities increase with college education. Nearly 2/3 of all job openings in 2020 will require some form of higher education or training.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently reported that 28.5 percent of college graduates with a disability were employed in 2018, compared to 75.5 percent of non-disabled graduates.

Two-thirds of all job openings in 2020 will require some form of postsecondary education or training. Across all levels of education in 2020, persons with a disability were less likely to be employed than counterparts with no disability.

Confidentiality of Disability Information

Disclosure of any disability information will not affect a student's enrollment status, placement into programs, classes, or financial aid. Disability records are confidential with access typically limited to Disability Services Staff. Under FERPA, Disability Services is permitted to release information to a school official who has a "legitimate educational interest" to know the nature of the disability.
