Welcome to Northern Wyoming Community College District.

We are excited you have chosen NWCCD and hope your experiences here are positive and rewarding! The information in the Welcome Packet is for those students interested in receiving accommodations while attending NWCCD. It is our hope that these handouts and forms will help students understand and better navigate the accommodations’ process at any one of our college locations.

What is in the packet? The packet includes a handout called Reasonable Accommodations that lists several examples of accommodations provided at a post-secondary level. The process for requesting accommodations is summarized in the accompanying brochure and explained in more detail in the handout called Process for Requesting Accommodations. For your convenience, we have included a handout that describes the differences between receiving accommodations at a high school versus a college level. We have also enclosed an Initial Intake Form should you want to start the process for requesting accommodations. This form needs to be completed and returned to our office along with appropriate documentation that supports the need for accommodations. Documentation requirements are found in the Process for Requesting Accommodations handout under step two. Please note that although an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) from a high school can be helpful information, it is rarely sufficient documentation at a post-secondary level. We encourage you to allow plenty of time to start the disability services accommodations’ process. Depending on the types of accommodations being requested, the process could take up to several weeks. Feel free to call, email, or stop by, should you have any additional questions. Please also let us know if you need this packet in an alternative format.

We look forward to assisting you!
