How much does Project Success charge for its services?
There is no charge for Project Success services during the academic year above and beyond the student’s normal resident or nonresident tuition.
How do I set up my accommodations?
Each student is responsible for advocating for his/her own accommodations in college. At the start of each semester (Fall, J-Term, Spring, May-Term, Summer) any current Project Success student who plans to utilize accommodations should submit a Term Request on Accommodate. It is the student’s responsibility to submit a Term Request, and it is in the student’s best interest to submit the request at the start of the semester. Once the term request is approved, an accommodation form will be generated for the student to share with their course instructors through Accommodate.
If a new class is added after submitting a term request, the student will need to submit a new request for the accommodation plan letter to be sent to the new instructor. The Accommodation plan lists the specific accommodations that the student may use, including (but not limited to) extended testing time, distraction-reduced environment, access to a reader for exams and quizzes, access to a note-taker, and/or electronic books.
At the beginning of each semester, the student must disclose their participation in the Project Success program to each professor and discuss the accommodations that they will be using throughout the semester. To help create an efficient process for students and instructors, Project Success staff members are available to work with students and explain the process for setting up specific accommodations.
What should I do if I have a question about my accommodations?
Any student who has questions regarding their accommodations or the use of services should contact a Project Success staff member. All of our staff members are here to help students learn and apply the strategies and skills to become academically independent as they progress through their college coursework. Because our office is student services oriented, it is helpful to call or email ahead of time to set up an appointment. Phone: (920) 424-1033 email@example.com
