Disability Services

Mission Statement

The Office of Counseling & Disability Services (OCDS) at New Mexico Tech (NMT)

endeavors to enact the civil rights legislation passed in 1973 by the United States Congress

under stsection 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.  It states:

No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States... Shall solely by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance..

Therefore, we affirm that people with disabilities should have access to the social, economic, educational and cultural aspects of national life. Our aim is to support these stated ideals in the educational setting at NMT.

 Welcome to the Office of Disability Services!

New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (NMIMT) provides accessible programs, services and reasonable accommodations to ensure access for students with a documented, qualifying disability as defined by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
