  • When a student has either self-identified or has been identified as needing assistance with the English language by a counselor, faculty and/or staff member, the college has professional referral resources available through the Monroe County Learning Bank Network (MCLBN). In addition, we have support services available within the Learning Assistance Lab; this service is made available through the Perkins Grant (Perkins Occupational Populations Support Services). We currently make 2-3 referrals per year. An LEP may also be verified/identified by the Accuplacer and/or TOEFL placement tests. 
  • When students with LEP or other ADA-related challenges are identified by counselors, faculty and/or staff during the initial inquiry/recruiting event/counseling appointment/advising session, etc., they are referred to the Learning Assistance Lab, MCLBN, Michigan Rehabilitation or other available resources for assistance.  The counselors, instructors and/or tutors also use assistive technology or sign language translators to communicate with those with impaired hearing. The college maintains a line in the annual budget to cover any supplies, materials and/or other resources needed to accommodate students with any ADA related challenge.
