Academic Access Program
The Academic Access Program helps students with learning disabilities get the targeted support they need to excel at MMC.
About the Program
Academic Access is a cost above tuition program for students with learning disabilities that is specifically designed to foster academic success. Through accommodations and multifaceted support, students with learning difficulties will be able to handle the Marymount Manhattan curriculum along with their peers and classmates.
In addition to basic accommodations such as Extended Testing Time and Note Takers, the Program provides:
- Two hours a week with a learning specialist
- Academic Coaching for executive functioning skill building (by appointment)
- Personalized academic counseling for academic programs
- Priority Registration
- Monthly Parent Meetings during the Academic Year
It is important to know that MMC professors actively support the program and assist specialists by monitoring students’ progress throughout the academic year and arranging for accommodations. Our Learning Specialists help develop skills and strategies for coursework and coach their students in attitudes and behavior necessary for college success.
