The Office for Students with Disabilities has experience working with students with a wide range of needs. Some students have an obvious disability--they are blind, deaf or have a mobility need. Others, the majority, in fact, have an invisible disability like Attention Deficit Disorder, anxiety disorder or a learning disability. Whatever your need, we will work with you to develop reasonable accommodations to level the academic playing field.
You can also get help in sessions offered through a program called Succeed at CLC. This program offers two types of academic help: Study Zones and mini-workshops on academic success topics. It also offers Game Nights to help you relax and unwind.
