Madison College welcomes and supports students with disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended (section 504 and 508) require postsecondary schools to provide appropriate academic adjustments to ensure that they do not discriminate on the basis of disability.
Testing accommodations are changes in test administration that enable students to participate in tests in a way that allows abilities rather than disabilities to be assessed. They are provided to "level the playing field." Without accommodations, the test may not accurately measure the studentâ€™s knowledge and skills.
Madison College provides accommodated testing services at all campus locations. Proctors are present to provide monitoring and oversee accommodations. To receive testing accommodations, students must provide appropriate documentation to the Madison College Disability Resource Services office and obtain a written Accommodation Plan.
