Overview of Services
LSS is the office on campus that formally supports students with disabilities and determines academic accommodations. Students who experience disability-related barriers and intend to utilize accommodations are encouraged to connect with LSS as soon as possible. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 503-883-2562 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The LSS Online Application can also be completed prior to a student's first meeting.
Accessing Accommodations can provide more information about the process.
Individual Appointments and Academic Coaching
Students can meet one-on-one with the Learning Support Services staff throughout the semester. These meetings can serve as a way for students to stay grounded while away at college, work on study strategies, time management, organization, and / or other needs the student may have.
Tutoring Services through Learning Support Services (LSS)
The tutoring program is available to students as a system to help apply a deeper understanding of class material, practice new knowledge, try out a new study technique, or just have a knowledgeable person to talk to about a class. Tutoring is arranged on an as needed basis and is available to students for two hours per week per class. Students can utilize tutoring for multiple classes as needed. Please come by Melrose 020 today to learn more about tutoring resources. In addition to individual and group tutoring resources coordinated through LSS, many departments offer tutoring support. Academic resources such as the Writing Center are also available to support students.
Peer Mentors are a campus resource that help new and returning students navigate the academic environment by connecting with mentors. Contact LSS if you are interested in becoming a mentor or you are interested in receiving mentoring support.
LSS leads Study Skills Workshops that cover such topics as study strategies, time management, note notaking, and reading strategies. Please contact LSS for event scheduling or if you are interested in having LSS come and speak to your class, group, or club.
