Student Services

The Centers for Student Success

The Centers for Student Success staff engage in a partnership with students to help them achieve their academic goals. The staff includes a network of full-time and part-time professionals who are specialists in writing, English as a second language, and learning disabilities.

Access Services: Accommodation for Students with Disabilities

Academic accommodations are available for students with documented learning disabilities. Students with learning disabilities can process academic accommodation requests through Access Services. To receive academic accommodations, students must submit documentation that describes the nature of the learning disability to the Assistant Director of Access Services. Diagnostic testing that identifies the existence of the learning disability must have been completed within the past three years. The Assistant Director of Access Services recommends academic accommodations; however, it is incumbent upon the student to schedule an appointment with the Assistant Director at the beginning of each new semester to arrange for services. Students with learning disabilities can schedule an appointment with the Assistant Director by calling (401) 232-6746. Documentation guidelines may be accessed here.
