Welcome to the MC Office of Disability Support Services (DSS). Montgomery College is committed to radical inclusion and creating learning environments that are accessible and inclusive for all students, including those with disabilities. Accessibility is not only required by law; it is the right and smart thing to do.
DSS leads the effort to promote full participation and equal access to educational opportunities, programs and campus activities. DSS provides accommodations and support services for students with disabilities and educates the larger College community on disability related issues. When we celebrate and empower diversity at Montgomery College, we recognize and value disability as a distinct aspect of our diverse community.
DSS also ensures that the College complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act 2009 as Amended, in a partnership with students, faculty, and staff to identify and remove barriers so MC's campuses, programs and course are accessible and inclusive.
Students self-identify and are encouraged to contact DSS as soon as possible after admission to the College.

- Learning Disabilities
- Attention-deficit disorder (ADHD/ADD)
