LSS Overview

Learning Support Services (LSS) offers students a variety of academic support services that are designed to help Villanova students maximize their academic success.  Students of all abilities, including successful students who want to enhance their academic skills and students who are struggling, are encouraged to use the services of LSS.  Participation is open to registered Villanova students.

Additionally, in conjunction with faculty, LSS is committed to providing “reasonable academic accommodations” for students with learning disabilities, other neurologically based disorders, and those disabled by chronic illnesses.  Once admitted, students may request support services in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Our goal is to ensure that students with documented disabilities have an opportunity to grow independently to their full potential at Villanova.  Academic accommodations are available to students who meet established documentation guidelines.  Policies and procedures have been established to encourage self-advocacy, and to provide students with disabilities the same opportunities available to all students at Villanova.

Students with physical disabilities with questions or concerns about access and support services should contact the Office of Disability Services.

The mission of the Office of Disability Services (ODS) is to ensure that qualified students with documented disabilities have equal access to educational, social, and residential opportunities at Villanova University.  The Office of Disability Services is the primary office at Villanova with specialized knowledge and experience in physical disability issues.  Students with physical disabilities, neurologically based disorders which trigger a physical response, students disabled by a chronic illness and have physical complications due to that illness, or a temporary injury that requires physical accommodations should look into the service that the ODS provides to ensure safety, security, and academic progress.  Our office will work closely with all faculty, staff, and services to help provide these accommodations.
