At Ashland University, we are committed to giving every student the support and services they need to pursue their college education and take advantage of all available opportunities. No qualified student with a documented disability shall be denied access to or participation in the services, programs and activities of the college.
Students who have documentation from a medical doctor, psychologist, or psychiatrist for specific learning and/or physical or health handicaps may receive services through Disability Services, which is operated by the Classroom Support Services office. Students who use services through this office are more successful if they know how their disability impacts classroom performance. Their goal is to facilitate students to become self advocates within the academic environment.
During the first week of the semester, contact a Learning Specialist with your documentation to arrange reasonable accommodations such as
Classrooms moved for accessibility
Academic coaching for learning strategies
Sign language interpreters
Textbooks in alternate format
Accommodations must not fundamentally alter the course or the academic degree being sought.
Free Peer Tutoring is available to any undergraduate student. Individual tutors are available for most academic areas and group tutors are available for Math and the Sciences. Students arrange their own times with tutors for individual tutoring sessions.
