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.
