What if I have a disability and need accommodations?

The Director of Academic Support and Career Services facilitates all accommodations for students with disabilities. If you have a physical, cognitive or emotional disability, you should bring documentation of your disability to the Director of Academic Support and Career Services. Upon receipt of your documentation, she will work with you to formulate an individual learning plan that will enable you to fulfill your academic potential. Click here for more information on support services for students with disabilities.

Documentation of your disability must be on file with the Director before accommodations can be made. Documentation guidelines for students and health professionals are provided. Ideally, requests for accommodations should be made before the semester starts or as soon as possible thereafter.

Do I have to make an appointment to get help?

We recommend that you schedule your appointments so that you can get tutoring at a time convenient for you. Fill out the “Academic Tutoring Request Form” to make an appointment. Tutoring sessions usually last half an hour or an hour. Regular weekly appointments can be arranged by mutual agreement between the tutor and the tutee.
