The Landmark College Difference
Landmark College offers the same range of student services found at any college — from counseling and health services to student life and athletics. The difference at Landmark College is that these professionals, like our faculty and academic advisors, bring specific expertise in, and a passion for, working with students who learn differently.
Learn more about how the college experience at Landmark compares to traditional colleges which provide “accommodations” for students with learning disabilities (such as dyslexia), ADHD, and ASD.
Working together, we help students discover their path as confident, empowered, and independent learners. We integrate our innovative learning strategies into everything we do.
In addition to classes, students in their first year at Landmark College participate in weekly academic advising sessions while engaged with the advising curriculum. As students progress in their coursework in their second year they become increasingly independent and meet with their advisor less frequently. Students pursuing their bachelor’s degree work with degree specific advisors. The academic advisor is central to the system which supports individual student performance.
Centers for Academic Support
Landmark College’s Centers for Academic Support offer unparalleled support to students who learn differently, at no additional charge. The Drake Center for Academic Support is the first place students turn for help with reading, writing, and study skills. Academic support centers within individual departments offer drop-in support and one-on-one scheduled appointments with Landmark College faculty.
Counseling & Health
Students can receive educational technology guidance from the Drake Center for Academic Support. The DCAS helps students take advantage of the wide array of technologies that support the needs of students who learn differently.
Executive Function Coaching
Through the office of Coaching Services,Landmark College’s Professional Certified Coaches work with students who have a variety of learning profiles and struggle with executive functioning.
Social Pragmatic Support Services
Students who are academically prepared for college may still face significant challenges navigating the social curriculum and adjusting to the more fluid routine of the college student. Landmark College recognizes the need to provide additional programming to assist such students, including those with an autism spectrum condition, to meet their college goals. Our integrated services model for social pragmatic support services provides a structured living and learning environment that combines an effective pedagogical approach with tailored social and other programmatic supports.
The Landmark College Library offers walk-in assistance as well as one-on-one appointments with students to assist them with their research projects and with developing information literacy. The Library building offers a welcoming space conducive to individual and small-group study, as well as resources to support students’ curricular and extra-curricular needs and interests.
