  • Students with Disabilities (SSD)

    Students must be registered with SSD to receive accommodation services.

    Call (315) 866-0300 x8331 or email SSD@herkimer.edu. The sooner you take this step, the better.

    Once you have registered with SSD and have reviewed your semester accommodation plan with the Coordinator of Services for Students with Disabilities, it is important to meet one-on-one with each class instructor. You’ll want to be prepared to discuss your strengths and preferred learning style. Getting to know your instructors is an important key to success!
  • Academic Success Coaching: Academic Success Coaching is an interactive process that focuses on the personal relationship created between the student and the coach. The coach challenges the student to think about their personal and professional goals in order to relate them to their academic/educational goals. In this learning process, the coach encourages the student to become more self-aware by understanding their strength, values, interests, purpose and passion. Coaches will work with students on a variety of needs including but not limited to test taking strategies, time management skills, note taking skills and more.  
  • Placement Testing (including test prep): The ASC is responsible for testing all new incoming freshmen as they begin their Herkimer College academic career.
  • Academic Success Workshops: Learn strategies for success at one of our workshops. Check back often for a schedule of events.
  • Collaborative Learning Space: Great for group projects and collaboration, this unique area features interactive whiteboard capabilities and a fun group seating area. Bring your laptop or use one of ours. No reservations necessary to use this space. First come, first served!
  • Computer Lab: Computers are available for student use, loaded with many of the most utilized course software applications you’ll need for your courses (and there’s always help available nearby in case you have a question).
  • Learning Styles & Strengths Assessment: Find out how you learn best and what your talent profile tells you about yourself. Use this knowledge to make the most of your academic and career potential!
  • Skill Improvement: Need to improve your note-taking, time management or test-taking skills? Need to learn to navigate your online course or specific applications needed for your class? Tutors in the ASC can help you with these important academic skills and more.
  • Study Rooms for Individual or Small Group Use: All ASC rooms are wireless and available on a first come, first served basis.
