The Center for Access & Success would like to say Congratulations to the Class of 2019: graduates of UMass Dartmouth and UMass Law!
June 13th marks the start of First Year Student Orientation
It is a pleasure for us to extend a word of welcome to you on behalf of everyone at the University. You are joining a community that cares immensely about your success. If you are a student with a documented disability, we invite you to reach-out to us and see what we have to offer!
The Center for Access and Success (CAS) works with a wide variety of students with varying learning abilities or disabilities, such as students on the autism spectrum, attention deficit disorder, varying mental or physical abilities, and chronic health conditions. Students who have had an IEP or 504 plan in the past are encouraged to seek-out the Center to discuss academic accommodations and support to ensure equitable access to the academic experience on campus.
Common accommodations include extended time on tests in a reduced distraction environment and more. We also offer one-on-one personalized coaching covering mixed topics such as time management, organization, tips for effective studying, how to get involved on campus, and how to reach your goals for post-graduation.
CAS is bound by “self-disclosure law”. Even if you submitted documentation of a disability for an SAT waiver with your Admission packet, the Center cannot contact the student. You must make the initial contact.
This is a wonderful opportunity for you to make connections with professional staff, graduate assistants, and other students within our community who will support you throughout your academic journey.
