Our Enhanced Program is a comprehensive program designed to provide additional support for students with a primary disability of Attention Deficit Disorder or Learning Disability; however, students with other disabilities will be considered. A fee is charged for the Enhanced Program.
The Enhanced Program includes a two-credit Learning Strategies course, taken both semesters of the first-year, a weekly meeting with a Lynch Learning Center staff member and access to peer tutors, as needed. In addition, Accommodation Services are provided as part of the Enhanced Program. Students continue in the Enhanced Program after the first year with additional programming specific to the student.
Students interested in the Enhanced Program or the ARCH program apply simultaneously to the College and the program before the December 15 priority deadline. We encourage applicants to apply early in their senior year to avoid delays.
Accommodation Services are provided at no additional charge and may include extended-time testing, testing in a distraction-reduced environment, texts in alternative formats, assistive technology (including Read&Write GOLD) and consultation with Lynch Learning Center staff. Accommodations are determined by individual need and documentation. No additional application is required for Accommodation Services; however, students need to contact the Lynch Learning Center and submit copies of current disability documentation after acceptance to Loras and before the start of classes to determine appropriate services.
