Information for Students with Disabilities

The Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE) works with students to provide support they may need to have a rewarding and successful experience at Scranton. The CTLE is home to the University’s ADA Committee which determines whether a student is eligible for services and, if so, coordinates appropriate accommodations based on documentation provided by the student and other relevant professionals. We are fully committed to offering our students with disabilities access to programs, facilities and services on an equal opportunity basis.

With respect to privacy and confidentiality, CTLE reviews and maintains disability-related documentation and information in the most safe, secure, and effective way possible. Disclosures of specific health/learning issues to the CTLE will be held confidential and will not appear on a student’s college record.


It is the responsibility of the student to initiate the ADA interactive process by contacting and meeting with a CTLE staff member at the beginning of each semester, or when otherwise appropriate. Students interested in more information about requesting reasonable accommodations are encouraged to start the conversation by emailing, or calling (570)941-4038 to make an appointment. The CTLE is located in the Loyola Science Center – 5th floor.

We are looking forward to working with you!


Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, it is necessary to temporarily revise the standard Process for Receiving Academic Accommodations as described on the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence website. In light of these unusual circumstances and in order to provide you with the best opportunity for success, the CTLE will offer you provisional academic accommodations for the summer semesters only based on the documentation you have provided thus far. During the summer months, the CTLE staff will review the documents and finalize your list of approved accommodations for the fall term upon full review by the University's ADA committee. We will then contact you regarding approved reasonable accommodations for the fall semester.

A CTLE staff member will contact you to determine if you intend to utilize your accommodations for the summer semester, and explain how these accommodations will be implemented.
If you intend to accept provisional academic accommodations for the summer semesters, you will need to forward the attached faculty notification letter to your course instructor. This will be explained fully during your virtual CTLE appointment.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during these unusual times.


If you have been granted academic accommodations, you will be sent an email at the beginning of each semester reminding you to schedule an appointment with a CTLE staff member to complete your faculty notification letters.

If your accommodation(s) needs to be adjusted, please send updated documentation to the CTLE for review by the ADA Committee.

If you have any questions about accommodations at Scranton based on a disability or temporary impairment, feel free to visit the links below. If you have any questions, please send them to

You must take the initiative! This site is a valuable resource; however, it is not a substitution for a personal meeting with a CTLE staff member.
