Enrollment Tips

The following are some tips to help students with disabilities with enrollment process at Rogers State University.

  • Ask for help!
  • Register early and plan your schedule before enrolling
  • Ask yourself:
    • Have I planned enough time in between classes?
    • Have I allowed time between classes for extended testing time for exams?
    • Have I allowed time to process the information from a class, to study for the next class, or get organized for the next class?
    • Is the facility accessible? If not, please visit with the Director of Student Development to plan for that class.
    • Do you need special assistance in reading for a class?
    • Do you need the books or materials in an alternative format?
  • Double check your class schedule.
    • Are you a morning person or have problems with joints or body aches in the early morning? If not, schedule your classes for the afternoon.
    • Are you prone to seizures or changes in blood sugar levels during certain times of the day? How can you schedule around those times?
    • Do you have special dietary needs or take medication at specific times? Schedule accordingly.
  • If you have trouble concentrating or processing information, you may have more success in classes that last 50 minutes rather than classes that last longer.
  • If you need more continuity or practice time in class, choose courses that meet three times per week.
  • What type of class fits your learning style?
    • Class format (small group vs. large lecture)
    • Teaching style of professor
    • Exam format (essay vs. multiple choice)
    • Reading requirements
    • Number of credit hours (manageable vs. required)
