STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES help students adjust to and succeed in training by providing comprehensive academic assistance and advice through the following services:

• Counseling on concerns affecting academic performance
• Tutorial Assistance
• Assistance for students with disabilities

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), identify a person with a disability as anyone with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity such as walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, working, or learning. Persons who have a history of a disability are also covered by the regulations.

It is the student's responsibility to identify his/her disability to the Director of Continuing Education and Request Accommodations. Any student request or inquiry regarding program accommodations for disabilities should be made as early as possible after admission into the program, or even before a student contemplates enrollment. If a student does not seek an accommodation for a disability, the Director of Continuing Education and instructors will assume the student is able to complete the program requirement without the need for accommodations.
