Student Services & Resources for Online Learners
The College has an Accommodations Committee, which includes the Academic Services Coordinator, the Dean of Students, and the Associate Dean for Academic Services, supported, when necessary, by consultations with the Director of Health Services, the Director of Counseling Services, the Director of Residence Life and Housing, and the Academic Advisor. To request accommodations for a disability or a learning difference, students should contact the Academic Services Coordinator. The Academic Services Coordinator will schedule a meeting to explain the procedures for providing documentation and the process for providing reasonable and appropriate accommodation. Students who believe they have a current and essential need for disability accommodation are responsible for requesting accommodation and providing qualifying documentation to the Accommodations Committee. The Accommodations Committee will make every effort to accommodate qualified students. If a student’s request for Disability Accommodations is approved, the student must contact the Academic Services Coordinator at the start of each semester in order to notify their instructors of their accommodations.
To request accommodations for a disability or a learning difference, students should:
Email the Academic Services Coordinator at AcademicServices@moore.edu to set up a meeting.
In addition to consulting with their Program Director, students should meet with the Academic Advisor prior to course registration. The Academic Advisor is available to advise about departmental course requirements, program status/graduation requirements, pre-requisite course requirements, and off-campus study. The Academic Advisor also pre-authorizes transfer credits for courses taken outside Moore.
