The William Peace University Disability Resource Center provides special assistance to students with disabilities and learning differences. The office assists students in accessing and using appropriate reasonable accommodations, and making sound choices about course load, study skills, strategies and self-advocacy.

Students have the right to privacy and responsibility to disclose their learning differences to the Director of Learning Services. Students who have registered must make an appointment with the director at the beginning of each semester in order to write a current academic reasonable accommodations plan. This plan may include:

Lending Library: The lending library allows students to borrow self-help books on varying disabilities, college success and life skills.

Individual Consultations: Individual Consultations with Disability Services Staff and/or Counseling Staff provide students with guidance on self-advocacy skills, study skills, learning strategies, organizational methods, assistive technology and stress management/relaxation techniques.

Workshops and Programs: Disability Services presents information in a variety of topics to help students succeed in college. Past programs have featured content about relaxation, stress management, test anxiety and time management.

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, college students are fully responsible for requesting accommodations and following any procedures involved in the process.
