Accessibility services

If you have a learning or physical disability, Northwestern College will provide you with the support you need to succeed. Our accessibility services staff is here to ensure you have full access to our educational programs, activities and facilities—and to help you achieve your personal, educational and career goals. Our smaller size enables us to be more responsive to your needs, and our faculty and staff are understanding, flexible and caring.

Our aim is to level the playing field for students with documented disabilities while maintaining the integrity and standards of our academic programs. Along with reasonable accommodations, we determine, coordinate, educate and advocate for an accessible and nurturing learning environment. We also encourage self-advocacy on the part of our students.

Contact us if you have one or more of the following disabilities:

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Blindness or visual impairment
  • Deafness and/or hearing impairment
  • Head/traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Learning disabilities (LD)
  • Physical disabilities and/or systemic illnesses
  • Psychological/psychiatric disabilities
