Enrollment Tips

The following are some tips to help students with disabilities with enrollment process at Rogers State University.

  1. Plan your schedule before enrolling.
  2. Ask for help!
  3. Register early.
  4. Ask yourself:
    • Have I planned enough time in between classes?
    • Have I allowed time between classes for extended testing time for exams?
    • Have I allowed time to process the information from a class, to study for the next class, or get organized for the next class?
    • Is the facility accessible? If not, please visit with the Director of Student Development to plan for that class.
    • Do you need special assistance in reading for a class?
    • Do you need the books or materials in an alternative format?
  5. Double check your class schedule.
    • Are you a morning person? If not, schedule your classes for the afternoon.
    • Do you have problems with joints or body aches in the early morning? Again, schedule your classes at a time when you feel your best.
    • Are you prone to seizures or changes in blood sugar levels during certain times of the day? How can you schedule around those times?
    • Do you have special dietary needs or take medication at specific times? Schedule accordingly.
  6. If you have trouble concentrating or processing information, you may have more success in classes that last 50 minutes rather than classes that last longer.
  7. If you need more continuity or practice time in class, choose courses that meet three times per week.
  8. What type of class fits your learning style?
    • Class format (small group vs. large lecture)
    • Teaching style of professor
    • Exam format (essay vs. multiple choice)
    • Reading requirements
    • Number of credit hours (manageable vs. required)
