Are campuses required to provide tutoring for students with disabilities throughout their college career?
Some colleges and universities provide tutoring to the general student population. In this case, the tutoring center and its materials should be accessible to students with disabilities. In addition, staff and volunteers should receive training about working with students who have disabilities. If tutoring is not provided to all students on campus, it is unlikely to be required as a "reasonable accommodation" for a student who has a disability. Consult your disabled student services office or legal counsel regarding a specific case on your campus.
For information on how to make your tutoring and learning centers accessible to students with disabiilities, visit the Tutoring and Learning Centers area of The Student Services Conference Room.
