Learning Support Services
Too frequently, bright and intellectually capable students are academically unsuccessful because they are frustrated by a learning disability. However, an intelligent, motivated student who is diagnosed with a specific learning disability can, with proper guidance and learning assistance, succeed academically in spite of his or her disability. Responding to the needs of such students, Schreiner University offers a comprehensive Learning Support Services Program. The Learning Support Services Program at Schreiner University serves a limited number of students, usually 60-70 each year, who have been diagnosed with dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, or a specific learning disability in reading, mathematics or written expression. Students in the program attend regular college-level courses, are held to the same high standards, and complete the same curriculum requirements as all other degree candidates. In addition to the LSS staff, the Schreiner University faculty is dedicated to helping students realize their full potential. Students admitted to the Learning Support Services program must be highly motivated, have the intellectual potential for success in a rigorous academic program, and have the ability to meet the demands of college life. Students with co-existing Autism Spectrum Disorders, traumatic brain injuries, intellectual disabilities, or severe psychological disorders are not eligible for the program, but may, with appropriate documentation, qualify for academic accommodations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Students participating in the LSS program will be charged a fee for the services. Current fee information is available from the Schreiner University Accounting Services Office.
