Meaningful Access to Services at MCC

We are committed to providing you with meaningful access to all services at Manchester Community College. Our Accessibility Coordinator, Melissa Olson, is available to help students with disabilities navigate college success.

If you have a learning disability, physical disability, medical condition, or mental health condition that impacts your learning, you may qualify or an accommodation plan. One example of a possible accommodation is “50% extended time on exams and quizzes”.

What we do

  • Work with students to create and provide accommodations and supports that are designed around the unique needs of each person.
  • Provide academic coaching and advocacy.
  • Discuss assistive technology and equipment loans (when available).
  • Provide information and referrals.

After you’ve met with an Admissions Counselor, learn more about services at the college-level so you have an idea of what to expect. Please review the Students with Disabilities Preparing for Postsecondary Education, and our Frequently Asked Questions (PDF) quick guide for helpful information.

Attending an Open House is also a great way to gather information about MCC’s accessibility services and speak with the Accessibility Coordinator directly.


If you have any questions or would like to schedule a meeting, please contact Accessibility Coordinator Melissa Olson, M.Ed, at or call (603) 206-8142.
