Fall 2021 Guidance/COVID-19 Information

Supporting Student Achievement

Success starts with support. And at SUNY Cortland, regardless of their abilities, students find the support they need in several offices across campus. It might come in the form of test accommodations made by Disability Resources, or a tutoring session with The Learning Center. The shared goals are simple: equal access to programs and activities, along with academic and personal success for all. Students first — it’s a motto that guides us.

Disability Resources

What they do:

  • Provide access to assistive technology.
  • Offer accessible e-text versions of books for students with reading disabilities or visual impairments.
  • Assist with test accommodations when necessary.
  • Manage records for students with disabilities.

Advisement and Transition

  • Assist with academic plans, course selection and career decisions.
  • Coordinate support for non-traditional students — undergraduates who have had a delay in their education since high school.
  • Lead Orientation sessions for first-year and transfer students.
  • Plan COR 101 — a one-credit seminar designed to introduce first-year students to SUNY Cortland.
