Faculty/Staff Guidelines

Montgomery College thrives in one of the most diverse communities in the country and is proud of the diverse student population which includes a generous and varying mix of age, gender, race/ethnicity, and disability.   The number of students with disabilities who attend college has increased over the years.  Montgomery College has also seen this increase as over 1,600 students with disabilities registered with the Disability Support Services (DSS) office in 2016 as compared to 1,200 students in 2010. 

Every student brings unique strengths and experiences to higher education. While all students learn differently, the ways students with disabilities learn and respond may require reasonable accommodations in the ways materials are presented and testing and evaluation methods are used.

Providing accommodations ensures equal opportunities for success in mastery of course material; it does not mean compromising the content, quality or level of instruction. All students are required to meet a standard of competency in coursework and these standards also apply to students with disabilities.
