The Enhanced Program is a comprehensive program designed to provide additional support for students with a primary disability of learning disability or attention deficit disorder, but students with other disabilities will be considered. A fee is charged for the Enhanced Program. The Enhanced Program includes a two-credit class, Learning Strategies, both semesters of the first-year; a weekly meeting with an LODS staff member; and peer tutors, as needed. The LODS staff member serves as the student’s primary advisor until s/he declares a major. Students may choose to continue in the Enhanced Program after the first year with a weekly meeting and tutors.
Students interested in the Enhanced Program should apply simultaneously to the College and the Enhanced Program. The Enhanced Program Application and current documentation should be submitted to the Lynch Office of Disability Services. After the materials are reviewed, appropriate candidates will be invited for an official interview with an LODS staff member. All application materials for the Enhanced Program must be received by December 15, the priority application date.
Students interested in the Enhanced Program are encouraged to apply early in their senior year to prevent delays in the process.
