Who We Are

The mission of the Center for Learning, Access, and Student Success (CLASS) is to provide opportunities for all students to achieve academic success.

Our Commitment

The Center for Learning, Access, and Student Success acknowledges the diverse educational and cultural experiences of every student we serve. We are committed to fostering accessible and equitable learning environments and are dedicated to advancing anti-racist practices and reducing systemic barriers in the educational setting. We put these concepts into practice by providing a range of services, education, and resources that extend to the entire campus community. Our aim is to highlight disability and learning access as essential dimensions of equity, inclusion, and diversity.

Academic Coaching

Academic coaching encourages students to strengthen a wide range of study skills including time management, note-taking, study skills, planning and organizing, test preparation, and test anxiety.

Test Proctoring

The Center for Learning, Access, and Student Success (CLASS) will assist in proctoring tests and exams for students with disabilities in the following circumstances:

  • The instructor has exhausted all other options within the department (such as rescheduling the exam in the department if the student cannot start before or stay after the scheduled class time or having other departmental graduate students or staff help with proctoring a test within the department).
  • The student’s testing accommodation requires a separate testing space that cannot be managed in the department.
