Welcome to Learning Support Services

Dedicated to fostering a supportive and inclusive educational  environment for students with disabilities at Springfield College, Learning Support Services serves as an educational and advocacy resource for students, faculty, and staff.

To ensure the full participation of students with disabilities in all College programs and activities, Learning Support Services provides academic accommodations and support services to students who provide appropriate documentation of a disability.

Support services for students with disabilities are coordinated through Learning Support Services. The director of Learning Support Services meets with individual students to verify eligibility for services, identify their needs, and to determine the appropriate support services and accommodations.

It is the student’s responsibility to self-identify and request accommodations and support services.
