Apply to SKILL
SKILL is a fee-for-service academic support program for undergraduate students with documented evidence of learning differences and executive functioning challenges. SKILL includes weekly coaching sessions which focus on: study skills, time management, decision making, organization, planning, effective and professional communication and academic progress monitoring.
Students enrolled in SKILL must have a documented learning difference or executive functioning challenge as verified by the Office of Accessibility; however, SKILL is an optional fee based service and is not considered an accommodation. Fees are $1200 per semester charged to the student's eBill account. Fees cover the administrative costs of the program, such as salaries, technology, and supplies. A limited number of fee waivers/reductions are available for students who demonstrate financial need as determined by their FAFSA, preference will be given to students who are eligible for Federal Pell Grant. It may not be possible to grant all requests for a fee waiver or reduction for students who demonstrate financial need; if the number of students who apply exceeds the number of funds available, waivers will be granted based on the EFC as determined by the FAFSA, meaning the waiver will go to the students who demonstrate the most financial need.
