Students with disabilities

If you have a learning disability that is already diagnosed or believe that you may have one, contact the Academic Resource Center as soon as possible to learn more about your options: 

  • The Academic Resource Center offers an array of academic support services, including study skills workshops, individual consultations, and tutoring in introductory courses, such as foreign languages. Study skills workshops are offered during the fall and spring semesters and are tailored to focus on a particular topic, such as time management, test-taking strategies, and handling the college reading load. If a student is experiencing challenges with the coursework, consult an Academic Resource Center administrator who will be able to address one’s individual needs and outline a plan of action.
  • The Academic Resource Center provides accommodations for students with disabilities based on documentation from a medical professional. Accommodations are provided on a case-by-case basis following review of this documentation and a meeting with an Academic Resource Center administrator.
  • Students are encouraged to be in contact with the appropriate ARC staff member as soon as they know that they will be requesting accommodations. Incoming students are highly encouraged to submit documentation prior to arriving on campus so that they may begin the accommodation process as soon as possible. Review of documentation may take 3 – 4 weeks.
