STUDENT ACCESS SERVICES

 
General Information
Description of ServiceArranges academic accommodations and provides support for students with physical, learning and/or psychological disabilities. In order to access services, students must first formally disclose their disability by registering with the office, and then must submit appropriate documentation for review. Staff members are available to help students with the registration process, and then will work with students to determine which accommodations are appropriate for their needs at the college level. In addition to arranging accommodations, a major part of the mission of SAS is to help students develop the skills they will need to be effective self-advocates at Hofstra and beyond. The programs and services will encourage active involvement from students in managing their own disabilities, while offering coaching and support along the way. Sample program offerings include: Program for Academic Learning Skills (PALS) and Academic Coaching. Some of these services are fee based. Call for more detailed information.
