Accommodations and support for students with documented disabilities are provided through the Office of Disability Services (ODS).

Students with documented disabilities are asked to make requests for services prior to the start of classes. Services through the Office of Disability Services may include assistance with college procedures, academic and career counseling, auxiliary aids and adaptive equipment, advocacy, classroom and testing accommodations, accessibility information, and referrals.

CMN is part of the Northern Wisconsin Educational Communications System (NWECS) which provides high quality live interactive television (ITV) communication throughout the state of Wisconsin and to the rest of the world. With this system, we have the ability to connect with several locations simultaneously for dynamic, exciting extensions to the classroom. This system is also capable of virtual field trips to anywhere in the world.
The college also has voice over Internet (VOIP) capabilities which allow us to connect directly to our Green Bay/ Oneida Campus. Both systems enable us to reach students in locations away from the main campus, while reducing travel time for students and Faculty.
