The following are some tips to help students with disabilities with enrollment process at Rogers State University.
- Plan your schedule before enrolling.
- Ask for help!
- Register early.
- 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?
- 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.
- 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.
- If you need more continuity or practice time in class, choose courses that meet three times per week.
- 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)
