Personal Care Attendants

New College of Florida understands that Personal Care Attendants (PCAs) may be necessary to address the personal needs of a student with a disability in order for that student to fully participate at NCF. An otherwise qualified student who requires personal attendant services is responsible for making arrangements to provide for their own personal attendant services.  NCF does not assume coordination or financial responsibilities for personal attendant services.
