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 New College. An otherwise qualified student who requires personal attendant services is responsible for making arrangements to provide for their own personal attendant services. New College does not assume coordination or financial responsibilities for personal attendant services.
