We are here to support you as you complete your college journey. Whether you only need academic support, or you need guidance managing life as an independent adult, we will provide you quality, individualized services that will help you realize your goals.
We will meet with you one on one at a convenient public location. Most of our students choose to meet with us on campus, but we also meet at local book stores, libraries, and coffee shops.
During individual consultations, we set goals for the appointment and develop a plan for accomplishing those goals.
Skill areas that can be covered during these appointments include:
Organization of course materials and paperwork
Meeting with college administrators and professors
Note-taking, studying, and learning strategies
Course content and assignment completion
Time management and planning
Anxiety management strategies
Independent Living support is designed to target the skill areas that students with disabilities struggle with. Accessible Academics staff meet at student residences to support the following skills areas:
Groceries and cooking
Budgeting and banking
Personal time management
Management of prescription refills and medical professional appointments
Students seeking independent living support are invited to live at Collegiate Village Apartments.
Students collaborate with staff during intake to determine a pathway to a meaningful career. A college major or vocational program is selected based on career options in the students’ area of interest. Students are provided support to attain internships, volunteer position, or part-time employment while in school or during summer vacation to build work experience. Students are connected to professional mentors in their field and receive vocational support for 3 months post-graduation. If students need longer vocational support after graduation, they are transitioned to a partnering vocational support program.

Students who are receiving any of the above services can attend weekly social activities and be matched with a peer mentor. Peer mentors are undergraduate students who attend the same post-secondary school. Students may receive specific social skills instruction as the need arises. Students who struggle with managing stress or anxiety can be coached in how to engage in Mindfulness, in addition to receiving external counseling services. Coaches are available after hours to provide additional support when needed.
