Academic Services

Every disability uniquely impacts learning, so accommodations are tailored to each individual. 

Academic accommodations ensure you have equal access to course materials in a format that makes the most sense for you. Appropriate accommodations vary for each student, but possible accommodations may include:

  • Alternative communication.
  • Note taking assistance.
  • Readers/scribes for tests.
  • Testing accommodations.
  • Texts in alternative formats.

Testing-specific accommodations enable you to be evaluated based on what you know, not on the effects of your disability. 

But that's not all! Additional resources provided by our staff or the Academic Success Center may include: 

  • Academic coaching on topics such as time management, organizational strategies, test taking strategies or study skills.
  • Peer tutors are available in most 100 and 200 level courses.
TAKING EXAMS AT THE ACADEMIC SUCCESS CENTER

Test proctoring is provided during normal business hours. If you are new to the process or if you have questions about how to take an exam at the ASC, please email us. Otherwise, you know the drill: 

  1. Be sure you have registered with our office by completing a Request for Accommodations form and have met with Jeanne or Carrie.
  2. Meet with each of your professors to discuss your learning needs and obtain their signature on the Faculty Notification Form (aka "White Sheet").
  3. Turn in the completed White Sheet.
  4. For each exam you will schedule in our office, complete an ASC Request for Testing Accommodations form (aka "Pink Sheet").
  5. Turn in the Pink Sheet.
TEXTS IN AN ALTERNATIVE FORMAT

Need to request your textbooks in an alternative format? Just follow these steps and contact us with any questions.

  1. Be sure you have registered with our office by completing a Request for Accommodations form and have met with Jeanne or Carrie.
  2. When you meet with Jeanne or Carrie, we will assist you to obtain a Bookshare membership. Memberships are free for students with qualifying disabilities.
  3. Verification that a student is eligible for electronic texts will be sent to the bookstore. Students then work directly with the bookstore to get the texts they need.
