* Documentation needs to be current (within 5 years).
Do I have to pay for these services?
No. Northwestern College is dedicated to providing equal education for all students. Therefore, we provide reasonable accommodations at no charge.
How can I become a tutor or note-taker?
Check Northwestern’s student employment listings for available positions. DOSS tutors and note-takers are paid college employees. Contact DOSS with any questions regarding posted tutor or note-taker positions.
What classes do these services cover?
DOSS works collaboratively with other departments to provide services in all classroom situations through faculty and staff, as well as the ALPHA Center.
Who will find out that I am a DOSS student?
Because of our concern about confidentiality, as well as our compliance with FERPA , only those you tell about your disability will know, except on a service-providing need-to-know basis.
