Provisions for Students with Special Needs
St. Lawrence grants "reasonable accommodations" to documented learning-disabled students as established by the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Such accommodations, which are the student's responsibility to request, are granted as needed on a case-by-case basis and are arranged by the student and professor upon consultation with the Director of the Office of Academic Services for Students with Special Needs. Academic requirements that are an essential part of the University's educational goals may be accommodated, but may not be waived.
The Office of Academic Services also serves individuals who have learning challenges or differing abilities. Anyone who has an impairment is provided counsel on the facilities, equipment and accommodations available at St. Lawrence. Further information about St. Lawrence University's accommodation policy is available from the Office of Academic Services at 315-229-5104.
Auditing a Summerterm Course
An (A) following a course name means that course is part of the Community Auditing Program. If you're 21 or over and want to take a Summerterm course for personal enrichment without earning credit, you can do so through the Community Auditing Program. You'll enjoy relaxed requirements, but need the written permission of the instructor, who may establish his or her own guidelines. Fees: $50 for those ages 21 to 60, $35 for those over 60.
You must be covered by family or other accident and health insurance. The University is not responsible for the loss or damage of personal property regardless of what or who causes the damage. We suggest you consult with your parents or guardians and insurance advisor to ensure that you have adequate coverage for accidents, illness and personal property loss.
