Tutoring is not an accommodation, it is a service. It is extremely important for students to attend tutoring on a regular basis. If a student misses a scheduled tutoring appointment, a Project Success staff member will be notified and an improvement plan will be created.

How do I set up my accommodations?
Each student is responsible for advocating for his/her own accommodations in college. Any student who is part of the Project Success program will receive a laminated yellow Accommodation Recommendation (AR) form each fall semester, or upon joining the program. The AR form 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. Although electronic books are requested through the Accessibility Center, students may pick up paperwork from the Project Success office to set up additional accommodations.
What is an Accommodation Recommendation form and where do I get it?
The Accommodation Recommendation form, abbreviated as the AR form, is a yellow, laminated document that each Project Success student receives upon joining the program. The AR form indicates the accommodations available to the student, based upon his/her documentation. Each student who wishes to set up accommodations in a course must first show their AR form to the instructor and disclose their participation in the Project Success program. The AR forms are available for students to pick up at the Project Success office.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
