Under the broad umbrella of undergraduate academics at Millersville are three colleges which house the various disciplines, each lead by a Dean. The College of Education and Human Services, the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, Lombardo College of Business and the College of Science and Technology contain over 120 different majors and 70 minors. While student’s major and minor classes are housed in their school, general education and related electives required for their major may be found in other schools. Undeclared students (students who haven’t chosen a major or have yet to qualify for entry to a major) are Exploratory Majors.
The Office of Learning Services strives to support faculty and students by supplementing student learners with academic accommodations, individualized learning assistance, peer tutoring, tutor training, auxiliary aids, assistive technology, academic skills’ workshops, and individualized programming to promote independent and successful learners for the future.
Accommodations for Students with Disabilities - There are two basic steps to obtain accommodations through the Office of Learning Services. Complete a Special Assistance Request Form for Students with Disabilities (PDF) and submit documentation from your physician or qualifying practitioner with your diagnosis and the types of accommodations that may be required by the disability or a complete psycho-educational, psychological, neuropsychological, or evaluation report (ER) as your official documentation of a learning disability. When these two documents have been received, they will be reviewed by the Director of the Office of Learning Services who will complete a list of the accommodations for the new student. The student will receive a confirmation letter listing the accommodations and will be provided general information about receiving services from this office. Please note: There will be ample opportunity for an exchange of information through a deliberative process between the Director and any student requesting accommodations. Students are welcome to contact the Office of Learning Services at 717-871-5554 to request an appointment to discuss their accommodation needs at any time during the process of requesting initial services or throughout their enrollment at Millersville University.
