The Accessibility Resources Center works closely with the administration, faculty, and students to identify and remove any physical, programmatic, or attitudinal barriers that might discourage, frustrate or deny the full participation and integration of students with disabilities in the College’s complete range of programs, activities, and courses of study.

MassBay provides equal access for each student who self-discloses a disability and requests accommodations through the Accessibility Resources Center for learning, testing, and other areas of need. Students can:

  • Make an appointment with an accessibility specialist;
  • Provide appropriate documentation of the disability; and
  • Request accommodations that will facilitate academic success

Accessibility specialists collaborate with faculty, providing guidance to students in the areas of:

  • Universally Accessible Classrooms;
  • Self-advocacy;
  • Applying learning strategies for academic success;
  • Advising during course enrollment; and
  • Finding mentoring and support opportunities.
