Personalized Learning Center

OneAmerica Personalized Learning Center

Marian University, through policy and practice, is committed to providing equitable access to learning opportunities for all students. In the Catholic, Franciscan tradition, we celebrate the dignity of each individual to ensure students with disabilities have equal access and opportunities as Marian Knights.

The Personalized Learning Center staff, along with students and faculty, engage in an interactive process to ensure accommodations are set up in a reasonable and supportive manner. This may also include connecting students to other on-campus resources, such as peer tutoring, academic success coaching, and career exploration services.

In Fall 2022, the Personalized Learning Center will launch the Autism Program. Plans also include a personalized orientation program for students with learning disabilities. 

Applying for Accommodations

At Marian University, we are committed to supporting students with all different types of disabilities and diagnoses including, but not limited to, attention-deficity/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities, physical and sensory disabilities, medical and mental health conditions, autism, as well as temporary disabilities. More than 150 students actively participate in these programs each year. Applying for accommodations is easy. 

Step 1: Complete the online Accommodation Request Form

Completing this form provides the Personalized Learning Center staff with information about the types of support you may have received previously, what you are requesting at Marian University, what potential barriers may impact your experience, as well as information about you and your diagnosis.

Step 2: Submit Documentation

The Personalized Learning Center recognizes and supports different types of documentation, including student’s personal narrative, high school records regarding accommodations, and information directly from a healthcare provider. Documentation can be dropped off in person, sent through the mail service, or emailed to PLC@marian.edu. Please contact the Personalized Learning Center for a copy of our documentation criteria.

Step 3: Schedule Meeting

Once your Accommodation Request Form and documentation have been received, a staff member from the Personalized Learning Center will reach out to set up a time to meet with you to discuss possible accommodations, engaging with your faculty, and also ensure you are connected to other appropriate campus resources. These meetings typically occur during the first few weeks of the semester, but if you would like to discuss your accommodation request before that time we can.
