Following is list of services, activities and programs, which serve students at New River Community and Technical College.
Community Services encompass the wide range of cultural, economic, environmental, scientific, social, and other activities and programs that involve interaction with individuals, groups, and organizations external to New River Community and Technical College and that contribute to mutual development of the college and the various community parties. Specifically, this involves partnership activities combining continuing education, workforce development and customized training, and service programs that strengthen the relationship between New River and the constituents that it serves.
New River Community and Technical College provides both occupation-specific continuing education programs that fulfill professional development requirements for working adults as certified through various regulatory agencies and community-based, non-credit programs that are offered primarily for enrichment purposes.
The college provides developmental foundation courses in Reading, English, Arithmetic, and Algebra (ENGL 098, ENGL 099, MATH 098, MATH 099) for students scoring below the benchmark scores on ACT, SAT, ASSET, or COMPASS assessment instruments. Successful completion of developmental course(s) is a prerequisite for many college-level courses. Developmental studies courses are not counted toward meeting graduation requirements and are not used in the calculation of the graduation grade point average; however, they are covered by financial aid.
Students with special needs are encouraged to contact the ADA compliance officer or the Student Resource Centers on their campus before the start of the semester and request accommodations. Students with documented disabilities are eligible for ADA accommodations if they meet the conditions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Students must self-identify themselves and provide appropriate written documentation of their disability. Students qualifying for services will work closely with the ADA compliance officer to determine potential accommodations afforded to participate in the academic programs and services. Reasonable modifications in policies, practices, and procedures are effected to assure equal access to individuals with disabilities. The ADA compliance officer will prepare the “Notification of Need for Accommodation” letters for the faculty.
Should a temporary disability occur during the semester, the student must provide reasonable and timely notice of a need for accommodations and services substantiated by appropriate documentation. Information provided to the Office of Disability Services is treated as confidential and is not released to anyone without the student’s prior consent. All inquiries are confidential.
