Students Seeking Disability Support Accommodations

COVID 19 – Registering for Disability Accommodations Update

The Learning Center is committed to providing appropriate and reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities. Please read the following information carefully as you apply for accommodations. There are separate instructions for New Students to the Learning Center and Students who have used the Learning center in the past.

Please note the following:

  • You will not miss any previously published disability deadlines by submitting documentation now. If you are applying for housing and/or dietary accommodations, we ask that you complete registration as quickly as possible. Housing and/or dietary accommodations will be reviewed on: June 30th, July 23rd and August 3rd. Please note – the College is working with a limited number of single spaces. While you may be granted a single space, a space may not be currently available. In this case, students with disability accommodations are put at the top of the waiting list. You will be contacted as soon as a room becomes available. Academic accommodation requests should be turned in by August 1st.
  • We are not currently in the office and cannot check USPS/Fedex/UPS mail. Therefore, all documentation must be scanned and added to registration forms.
  • New Students to the Learning Center: First Year Students or upper class students who have not worked with the Learning Center before should fill out the Clockwork online registration form. Please note – you may only fill out the online registration form once. Please make sure your documentation is scanned and uploaded at the time of registration.
  • Returning Learning Center Students: If you have worked with the Learning Center before and/or have a Clockwork account already established for you, please fill out this registration form. Please make sure your documentation is scanned and emailed to Amber Larson at alarson@wooster.edu.
  • The Learning Center is available for individual appointments via Microsoft Teams, phone, and email for those students and/or families interested in learning about disability support at the College. This meeting, while optional, will provide useful information on academic, housing and dietary accommodations and answer your questions about the application process. Find a time that works best for you and schedule an appointment. All meetings will take place during Eastern Standard Time. In addition, you can also explore our website and complete all relevant forms and review the policies and procedures. We look forward to meeting you.

Specific questions should be directed to Amber Larson, Director of the Learning Center, at alarson@wooster.edu.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

Academic Accommodations

If you are seeking accommodations for a documented disability, the Learning Center will help coordinate the provision of academic, housing and dining services. Appropriate accommodations will be considered once the student has presented clear documentation of the disability and discussed disability-related needs with a Learning Center staff member.
