Students needing note-takers, readers, and/or amanuensis must submit documentation with the Diagnostic Evaluation Report stating that such a service is necessary because of the nature of their learning disability. All approved reasonable accommodations will be discussed with the students and will be listed on the students' Accommodations Form.

How Do Students Obtain Note-takers?

We provide students with a form detailing the procedure for obtaining a note taker.  The staff and administrators of the Academic Resource Program work with the professors to identify a note taker from the students in the class.  The Learning Support Center then employs the note taker for the semester.

How Many Learning Assistants May A Program Student Have During The Semester?

A program student works with at least one learning assistant for two hours per week during the semester.  Additional appointments with one of the learning assistants may be arranged through the ARP administrators.  A program student may also work with a subject tutor for each of his/her classes.  A student may also opt to work in the Learning Support Center every day for as many hours as needed.

How Does The Program Communicate With Professors About Its Students?

At the beginning of each semester students are required to inform their professors that they are students in the Academic Resource Program and provide their professors with a copy of their Accommodations Form. Mid-semester reports are sent to each professor requesting a student’s attendance record, participation level in the class, test grades, and a projected final grade.
