Director Jeanne Christian can help you develop study skills and is experienced in math and science tutoring. Peer tutors are upper class students who have achieved "A's" in their courses and have been recommended by their professors. Many of them are also education majors with training in teaching techniques. They are familiar with the coursework and can help answer questions on your assignments and course requirements.

Want to become part of a study group? You will often find fellow students to work with; and you'll always be welcomed no matter how large or small your problem. There is no charge to you. The Dwyer Learning Center provides free educational support to all Notre Dame students to help them achieve academic success.

Guidelines for requesting Accommodations Based on Documented Disability or medical Condition

About academic accommodations: Students with documented learning disabilities who enroll at Notre Dame College have many services available to make attaining a college education possible.  They may choose basic 504 services for free, or they may choose a structured, fee-based package of services that go beyond basic accommodations.

Notre Dame College strives to make instructional programs accessible to all people and to provide reasonable accommodations according to the law.

Students are responsible to self identify their need for accommodations and to provide relevant and up to date documentation of a specific disability or medical condition from a qualified professional in order to receive services.

Academic Accommodations

In order to receive academic accommodations, please contact the Dwyer Learning Center. This must be done prior to the start of the semester, or as early in the semester as possible, for the evaluation and implementation of services. 

Learning Disabilities Documents

Please direct any questions to Jeanne Marie Christian, Director Dwyer Learning Center.
