The Academic Support Office acts as a liaison between students with disabilities and the Lee University academic community. In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and the amended ADA of 2011, the Academic Support Office works to ensure that students with disabilities, (physical, sensory, learning, and/or emotional), have equal access to educational opportunities. The Academic Support Office also provides information on issues of accessibility and reasonable accommodations. These services give students with disabilities equal access to academic programs. In addition to serving students who are permanently disabled, the Academic Support Office also serves students who have temporary disabilities. Students who think they may qualify for these accommodations should contact the Office of Academic Support to set up accommodations. Lee University is committed to the provision of reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities, as defined in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
The Academic Support Office provides on campus academic tutoring to all Lee students. Although tutoring is not offered for 400 level classes, tutoring is available for most other courses. Tutoring is offered in various ways, including one-on-one tutoring, small group tutoring, and lab tutoring. Tutors are provided free of charge for any student who is having difficulty with a class and requests help. Tutors are recommended by faculty members, and are trained and carefully supervised as they deliver services. All tutorial services are monitored and evaluated for effectiveness.
The Academic Support Office provides free mentoring for students who need extra support socially.
