Office for Students With Disabilities


In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, students with documented disabilities may seek academic accommodations for their disability free of charge. These academic accommodations include extended time on tests, use of a note sharer and tape recording of lectures.


The Alternative Learners Project (ALP) is a fee based program of services offered in addition to the services Misericordia University is required to provide students with disabilities under 504. ALP services include an eight-week course in Learning Strategies and an individualized Program of Accommodations (POA). The POA may include writing support instruction, access to a dedicated study room and time management skills. Each student meets individually with a program coordinator on a weekly basis.

The 2015-2016 fee schedule is as follows:

First year freshmen $2,250 (first semester)

Second semester freshman and all upperclassmen $1,750 (semester)
