Welcome to the Learning and Accessibility Services Office

Learning Support 

LAS seeks to provide all students with academic support designed to help enhance and enrich their college learning experience. Through individual meetings with LAS staff, and academic workshops and seminars, students can develop study strategies, learn to use tools to support their learning, and build on existing academic skills.

Our academic support services include assisting students in the areas of time management and planning, reading and note-taking, test-taking and preparation, study tools, combatting procrastination, and much more. In addition, our office provides Academic Life Coaching to students who desire to work on goal setting, creating action steps and maintaining accountability.
