Numerous academic support services are available to students. Please familiarize yourself with these and let your advisees know about them as appropriate.
Advisors will be notified by email if one of their advisees receives an academic warning. Advisors are strongly encouraged to contact the student to find out why the student is having difficulty. Students receiving academic warnings in two or more courses will be contacted by the Associate Dean of Students (Academic). Faculty may send academic warnings online.
Coaches and other extracurricular advisors are often helpful when a student is struggling academically. They usually know the student quite well, and advisors are encouraged to contact them if they think it would be helpful.
Students having serious difficulties in courses should be referred to Stephen Orvis, Associate Dean of Students for Academics (ext. 4600, sorvis).
Students seeking special arrangements will need to provide the Dean of Students Office with a recent evaluation conducted by a specialist in the appropriate field. It should include a specific diagnosis, information regarding onset, longevity and severity of symptoms, and information on how the disability and/or related medications and treatments interfere or limit any major life activity including participation in the courses, programs and activities of the college. Students should contact Allen Harrison Jr., the Associate Dean of Students for Multicultural Affairs and Accessibility Services (ext. 4021, aharriso), for further information and accommodations.
