Disability Support Services at Wilkes University is committed to providing equal educational opportunity for all students who meet the academic admission requirements.
Wilkes University Disability Support Services are located at Conyngham Hall.
Both university policy
and the law
require that students with documented disabilities receive reasonable accommodations in order to access to the academic courses, programs, and activities of the University. The Disability Support office helps to provide the support and accommodations for self-identified students with documented disabilities. Students with a variety of difficulties and needs use our services such as those with learning disabilities, ADHD, mobility issues, visual or hearing impairments anxiety and depression - just to name a few. We provide classroom accommodations on a case-by-case basis customized for each student based on his or her documentation. We also have tutoring/supplemental instruction services and a learning specialist to help students further develop study skills.
If you are an individual with a disability, contact
our Disability Support office as early as possible. In order to receive accommodations, you must provide appropriate documentation of your disability. As documentation takes time to gather and review, it is in your best interest to provide your documentation as early as possible so that appropriate accommodations can be set in place when they are needed.
To learn more about disability services and the accommodations process, please contact the office at your earliest convenience. We are located on the 3rd floor of Conyngham Hall
. You can reach Katy Betnar, the Disability Support coordinator by calling (570) 408-4150 or by email
