Nichole’s office is located near the Library and Academic Succes Center in Room RL95B. Students must meet with the Accessibility Coordinator before they can obtain accommodations for their disability.
Students are encouraged to notify the Student Accessibility Coordinator in a timely manner so that appropriate accommodations can be provided.
