Learning Opportunities Program

The Learning Opportunity Program (LOP) is offered for students who present with a primary diagnosis of a language-based learning disability, executive functioning weaknesses, and ADHD, and who have at least average to superior intellectual ability. As a participant of this fee-based program, the student will register for the required classes for their degree program, as well as receiving added support throughout the academic year to address individualized learning needs.

As space is limited, the terminus date to submit the application for the LOP is May 1, (please click for online application and required supplementary forms).  All applications are thoroughly evaluated in order to identify students whose needs best match the specially designed program and support offered by the LOP.


Learning Opportunities Program services

Once accepted into the Learning Opportunities Program, the student will meet regularly with an assigned professional Learning Specialist. During bi-weekly sessions, the student will gain important skills and strategies to help make the most of their college experience. Students with documented disabilities are also eligible for reasonable accommodations, under state and federal laws. For example, accommodations in the classroom, modification of tests and assistive technology are available. Learn more about services for students with disabilities.
