Services for Students with Disabilities

The Student Success Center strives to provide strong academic support services for all students with learning and/or physical disabilities who require specialized accommodations. Once the student self-identifies, the Student Success Center will work in partnership with the student to meet his or her educational goals. This includes all students in the undergraduate and graduate programs.

The Student Success Center can provide the following accommodations for students with special needs:

  • Extended time for tests
  • Readers for tests
  • Note takers
  • Advocacy
  • Assistance in obtaining books on tape
  • Tutoring
  • Some assisted technology devices for the visually impaired

A student who requires these accommodations must have official documentation on file with the Student Success Center. This documentation may be a letter from a physician or qualified professional on letterhead or a report from the student’s last psychological evaluation no more than three years old. A list of accommodations that the student has used in the past would be helpful in planning for the student’s educational needs.
