The mission of the Office for Disability Services (ODS) is to ensure full and equal participation for persons with disabilities in the LCN community by providing facilitators, programs, and services that will support and enhance individuals’ ability to achieve their academic and personal goals. The Office is dedicated to encouraging self-advocacy, promoting equal access, and working with individuals to determine and establish appropriate accommodations.
The Office for Disability Services can assist students with documented disabilities as defined by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the ADA Amendments Act in requesting appropriate accommodations to facilitate reaching their academic goals. Accommodations are designed on a case-by-case basis based on student need.
To be eligible to receive services, students must have a documented disability, provide appropriate documentation, and register with ODS. Documentation must include a statement from the diagnosing professional and be based on testing completed within the past 5 years. All ODS registration forms are available at www.ncods.lincolncollege.edu.
Lincoln College-Normal is committed to providing equal access to all College programs and services. There is an anonymous form on the ODS web site by which individuals can report access barriers.
The Office for Disability Services is located in Room 106B in the main academic building and can be reached at (309) 268-4321 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
