Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 are federal anti-discrimination statutes that provide civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, the legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities.

If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, contact the ADA Coordinator, Carla Murphy, at carla.murphy@neo.edu or call 918-540-6969. In order to receive academic accommodations for a disability, the student must provide appropriate documentation of their disability to Mrs. Murphy. This information may be mailed, emailed or hand delivered. Students who have the information mailed or emailed must contact Mrs. Murphy to ask for accommodations before any will be provided. If accommodations are requested, the student must meet with the ADA Coordinator every semester.

Technology Accessibility

A variety of technologies are used for course delivery and for assessment of learning, particularly in online courses and blended courses (partially online). If you need assistance in accessing online materials, contact your course instructor or the ADA Coordinator.

Grievance Procedure for Students with Disabilities

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by the U.S. Department of Justice regulations implementing Title II of the American Disabilities Act. Title II states in part that “no otherwise qualified disabled individual shall, solely by reason of such disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of or be subjected to discrimination in programs or activities sponsored by a public entity.
