The Office of Student Success provides services for students with specific learning disabilities. Schedule a meeting with Carrie Pierson, Director of Disability Services/ADA Coordinator, to discuss eligibility, and accommodations and services options based on your ADA documentation.
You can reach Carrie by calling 217-424-3999, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or coming to her office in lower Staley Library Room 14-B. Follow-up with Carrie as soon as have your semester class schedule, and plan to meet with her during the semester. Ongoing contact with the Director of Disability Services is critical for students with learning disabilities so that resources and services supporting your academic success may be arranged.
Although students with disabilities may be eligible for accommodations; they are still required to meet all of a program's technical standards. Students should be aware that certain programs and degrees require the ability to perform specific critical skills. Conduct rules and attendance policies apply to all students regardless of their disabilities. Course substitutions are sometimes possible based on ADA documentation, but must be approved by the Dean and Academic Advisor. Students seeking course substitutions must provide the necessary documentation and meet with Carrie to discuss their options.
Please note, Millikin University does not provide assessment services for students who may have a learning disability, nor does the University have structured programs available for students with disabilities.
