Goucher provides many types of academic support services to qualified students with disabilities. Goucher’s Disabilities Specialist works closely with Goucher’s Academic Center for Excellence to implement necessary accommodations, which may include providing note-takers, extended test time, quiet spaces, and other services that are available to all students, including academic coaching, supplemental instruction and tutoring.
To apply for an academic accommodation, please complete the online accommodation request form. For students with learning disabilities and/or attention deficit disorders, a psycho-educational evaluation may be required. (See Policy: Documentation of Learning Disability and/or Attention Deficit Disorder (PDF).
Students requesting academic accommodations will need to meet with the disabilities specialist at the beginning of the fall semester, to develop an "Agreement for Students with Disabilities." If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact OAS at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
