LEARNING ACCESS PROGRAM, J-204
(609) 652-4988 | firstname.lastname@example.org
The Learning Access Program (LAP) is Stockton University's disability support services office. Our role is to educate, advocate and facilitate equal access while maintaining a welcoming, inclusive and accessible campus community. LAP engages in an interactive process with each student to determine appropriate accommodations on an individualized case-by-case, class-by-class basis. This practice is in accordance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act in all of its policies, and procedures.
If you are a new student seeking services from the Learning Access Program or a current student that needs to renew your accommodations for the upcoming semester, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
Students can meet with our Adaptive Technology Specialist to explore a variety of software programs, applications, and other resources that can help your academic and life skills.
Accommodated testing, notetaking requests and alternative media requests are handled between the student who has this approved accommodation and the Learning Access Program.
This section contains important information for students who are seeking additional information and guidelines for services with the Learning Access Program.
Faculty & Staff Resources: The Learning Access Program is committed to help guide faculty and staff in producing accessible content for students with disabilities. Depending on the nature and functional limitations of a student’s documented disability, they may be eligible for academic accommodations and/or auxiliary aids.
Resources are available to assist you in creating an inclusive learning environment and to help answer questions you may have about working with student accommodations.
Parent/Guardian Resources: The Learning Access Program can assist you in the transition from your role in the student’s academic experience to allowing them to take ownership over their academic experience.
