On occasion a student with a disability will require an assistant for a lab or non-lecture classroom setting due to the nature of his/her disability. This lab assistant may assist the student by reading, writing/scribing, or by manipulating lab tools/materials. Clear boundaries are absolutely necessary in these situations. In all cases, the student is responsible for directing the actions of the lab assistant, not vice versa. A college student with a disability is always responsible for doing his/her own work.
Any student who qualifies for lab assistance must contact the Academic Support Center at least four weeks in advance. Requests for lab assistance services received with less than four weeks notice for on-going classes can result in delayed services.
