Students with Learning Disabilities

Students who have documented learning disabilities or who suspect they may have learning disabilities should be referred to Plymouth Academic Support Services (PASS). Counselors are available to work with students with documented disabilities. These counselors are trained to judge whether such students are entitled to special accommodations for testing (such as individualized or extended test taking in the PASS Office) or learning, and if so, PASS helps arrange these.

One accommodation that is made for students with certain kinds of learning disabilities is early registration. These students register with the PASS Office a few days prior to the start of initial registration and hence may need to see their advisors for schedule planning as much as a week ahead of other advisees.
