University Academic and Career Center
The University Academic Mission is to provide Judson students, faculty and staff with comprehensive academic support and resources to further enhance our students' learning here at Judson.
We will provide necessary assistance to students who need tutoring, mentoring, counseling, and other personal, spiritual, and academic needs.
Along with the annual fall on campus job fair the first week of school, now all job postings and internships for current students are listed on the MyJudson site along with a few key career resources. All job openings sent to the Career Center, including entry-level positions, are posted for alumni on the Judson website.
New students attend orientation sessions for several days prior to their first semester. Sessions include presentations by faculty and staff, social events, and registration. During their first semester, new freshman also take a three-hour course taught by various faculty members to assist them in adjusting to college life.
Prior to fall and spring semester, parents are invited to special programs to meet the president, faculty and other college personnel.
Students with Disabilities
Under the American Disabilities Act, (ADA) all student seeking special educational accommodations must provide current notice of the restricting condition to he college. All Clinician reports must be performed while you are an adult age (over the age of 18). The university may not accept Individual Education Plans (IEP's) from High School as current valid documentation under the ADA guidelines since students are identified as minors and children under the age of 18 while receiving IEP (K-12) services.
Colleges and universities are only required to accommodate a student's disability if the relevant school personnel are aware that the student has a current disability and the student has publicly stated their disability. If you seek a reasonable educational accommodation at Judson University, we must request current proof of your disability.
The most effective way to show that you are entitled to reasonable ADA accommodations in the current school term is to:
- Obtain a letter from a trained, licensed medical professional/clinician who is familiar with you and your type of disability and has completed applicable, supporting diagnostic tests that validate the specific disability.
- Obtain a licensed clinician's summary letter outlining the disability, test results and any confirmed, possible limitations to learning, and reasonable academic accommodations in order to meet the needs of the post-secondary coursework.
- Under ADA, reasonable accommodations or minor academic adjustments my include the following sample based on diagnostic test results:
- Allowable recording devices for class lectures
- Assigned note takers
- Audio book
- Extended time on tests (not to exceed time and 1/2)
- Testing in a quiet testing room
- Use of calculators (for Dyscalculia)
- Sign Language Interpreters for academic coursework
- The documentation must reflect your abilities and limitations at the academic Post-Secondary level at the time you request the accommodation.
- Please note: The post-secondary school does not have to make changes or adjustments that fundamentally alter the academic prescribed coursework or graduation requirements under ADA.
Therefore, in order to receive accommodations at Judson University, please seek updated documentation from the medical professional(s) who has most recently treated and performed diagnostic tests for your disability while over the age of 18.
Please send or fax all documentation to the Judson University Registrar, Ginny Guth email@example.com before the start of the term.
