Helena College Mission:

Helena College supports our diverse community by providing the paths and tools necessary to assist learners in achieving their educational and career goals.

Helena College is committed to equal access and the civil rights of people with disabilities. We strive to remove barriers to our programs and campus facilities wherever they exist. Services for students with disabilities are provided at Helena College under the guidelines of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Access to the College's programs is provided for all qualified students regardless of ability or disability, and discrimination based on disability against any student is specifically prohibited under these laws. . For inquiries about the non-discrimination policies for students with disabilities, you can contact the 504 coordinator:

Students may seek accommodations for many reasons, but some of the most common are:  ADHD, students who are Visually Impaired or Blind, students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing, drug and alcohol addiction, learning disabilities (dyscalculia, dyslexia, etc.), physical disabilities, psychological and psychiatric disabilities (PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, etc.), traumatic brain injuries, temporary disabilities (like from a crash or fall on ice), or even pregnancy. A couple examples of accommodations students may request / use are: extended test time, quiet or different testing areas, the ability to move or stand during class, medicine or snack break during class, and live captioning.
