Learning disabilities

Welcome to the Learning Disabilities Program office. Our commitment is to provide every student with learning disabilities access to all academic programs and college resources by providing academic accommodations and services.

A person with learning disabilities has an average to above-average intelligence, yet has significant differences in how they remember, understand, and express information. Learning disabilities can affect students in reading, writing, oral language, and mathematics.

If you suspect you have learning disabilities, or have prior documentation, please come to our office to discuss the next appropriate step for you.
