At Kuyper, we believe that every student can be successful. We also believe that students should be provided the resources to ensure that success. To that end, Academic Support offers a number of programs—from tutoring to writing help—open to all students so that they may achieve their fullest potential.
Kuyper College complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act
and the Americans with Disabilities Act by providing reasonable services to
qualified students. The Academic Support Office has an open line of
communication with faculty and staff members concerning the special needs some
students may have. For the College to provide accommodations to a student, the
Academic Support Office must have current and comprehensive documentation on
file. A form may be acquired from the Academic Support Office, which will state
a clear diagnosis of the problem. This documentation will also describe the
criteria and testing given, including aptitude; academic achievement in reading,
math, oral and written language; information processing; recommendations for
accommodations; treatment, medication, or auxiliary aids; and credentials of the
diagnosing professional. The College assists persons with learning
disabilities through communication with the faculty, audio books, note-taking,
special advising, tutoring, diagnostic screening, coaching,
and alternative testing arrangements. Students are also taught how
to advocate for themselves. To gain access to these accommodations, students
should contact the Academic Support Office before the beginning of the term and
provide documentation of their learning disabilities. Our goal is for them to
become confident learners and achieve maturity in interdependence. New students who have not undergone prior testing for learning
disabilities/differences and/or ADD/ADHD are welcome to come to the Academic
Support Office to discuss options. The Academic Support Office can refer
students to physicians in the area who will perform a complete battery of
learning evaluations. The Academic Support Office can also recommend counseling
by our counselor. The Kuyper campus is barrier free. Students with
physical or learning disabilities that may hinder them in classroom and academic
activities should contact Andrew Zwart or Bill Botts in the Academic Support Office. Students whose disabilities affect their
mobility or limit participation in social activities should contact the Student Life Coordinator in the Student Life Office.
Below are some specific services offered for students with disabilities:
Alternative Testing Arrangements Kuyper College has
adopted the "time-and-a-half or two-times" rule for students who require
extended time on tests. Depending on the professor's wishes and the student's
ability, a test will be given with the regular allotted time, plus half of that
time or twice the allotted time. Kuyper College reserves the authority to place
all students who require testing accommodations in the same section.
Audio Books Resources for the Blind and Dyslexic
(RFB&D) is the chief provider of textbooks on tape and on CD. To be
registered with RFB&D, a student must be diagnosed and recommended. The
Academic Support Office can assist with this registration process and takes
responsibility for ordering textbooks on tape or CD. Annual membership fees for
this service are charged to the student's account, and any loss or misplacement
of materials is the student's responsibility. Note-Taking
The Academic Support Office coordinates the gathering of notes
and printed lecture outlines for students requiring this accommodation. Often,
another student in the same section will simply photocopy his or her own lecture
notes and distribute them to students who require them.
