  • Americans with Disabilities ActIn compliance with Lake Superior State University policies and equal access laws, disability-related accommodations or services are available to students with documented disabilities. If you are a student with a disability and you think you may require accommodations you must register with Accessibility Services, which is located in the KJS Library, Room 233 or call (906) 635-2355 or x2355 on campus, or email at . Accessibility Services will provide you with a letter of confirmation of your verified disability and authorize recommended accommodations. This authorization must be presented to your instructor before any accommodations can be made. Students who desire such services should meet with instructors in a timely manner, preferably during the first week of class, to discuss individual disability related needs. Any student who feels that an accommodation is needed – based on the impact of a disability – should meet with instructors privately to discuss specific needs. The university will make reasonable accommodations for persons with documented disabilities. Students should notify the Coordinator of Accessibility Services (located in LBR 233), and their instructors, of any accommodation needs as soon as possible.
  • IPASS (Individual Plan for Academic Student Success)  – The IPASS program assists students in developing an Individualized Plan for Academic Success. Students can initiate contact with IPASS on their own, or may be directed to do so by their advisor, by an instructor, by the Scholastic Standards/Financial Appeals Committees, or by the Provost’s Office. If at mid-term your grades reflect that you are at risk for failing some or all of your classes, you will be contacted by a representative of IPASS. The IPASS program is designed to help you gain control over your learning through pro-active communication and goal-setting, the development of intentional learning skills and study habits, and personal accountability. Contact IPASS at if you would like to sign up early in the semester or if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Online and Blended Course Policies – Students in online or blended classes are required to log in to the Course Management System (Blackboard, Wimba, TaskStream, etc.) and complete at least one “Academic Related Activity” within the Add/Drop period.
