We now offer a software program and browser extension called Read & Write that can help our students reach their full academic potential by offering support with everyday tasks like reading text out loud, understanding unfamiliar words, researching assignments and proofing written work.

Students in Library College of the North Atlantic is committed to providing an inclusive learning environment which celebrates and encourages diversity. CNA promotes equal access and opportunities to facilitate success in the educational community and in the community at large. Our philosophy is to presume competence and encourage independence and self-actualization; empowering all students to recognize, celebrate and productively use their abilities!

If you are a student with a disability and you will require services and supports from Accessibility Services, start the application process early. Early planning can help you avoid any delays in starting your program or in accessing the services and supports you will need. If, for example, you require adaptive equipment, alternate format texts or interpreting services, at least three months notice may be needed to ensure availability at the start of your program.

If you choose not to identify a disability until after you have registered, there is no guarantee that you will be accommodated in your current semester. Some accommodations take time and resources to implement and therefore, in certain circumstances, could be delayed.

Additionally, if you wish to apply for funding to help offset the costs of disability related supports you will need to connect with funding agencies early.
