Get started:

Center For Academic Development (CAD)

Along with resourcing students for research papers and providing a quiet place in the library, the Center for Academic Development provides reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities.

CAD Services Available

Learning support services are offered to all Northpoint Bible College students who qualify under the ADA/Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

To arrange support services, students must self identify, notify the CAD of the disability, provide appropriate documentation, and request specific accommodations. 

An IEP or 504 Plan may also be sufficient to establish disability. All documentation is treated as confidential information under FERPA guidelines.

The Center for Academic Development is located on the second floor of the Bell Center Library.
