Adaptive Services

Adaptive Services is open

Welcome to the Fall semester at Adaptive Services! While we will continue to offer virtual assistance, we are able to meet with students in person.  In order to adhere to the required protocol due to Covid 19, we have implemented procedures that will assist in maintaining the health and safety of our students and staff.  Below is information regarding our reopening procedures, and we encourage you to continue viewing our Canvas page for up to date announcements and information.

  • Office Hours are 8am-5pm Monday thru Friday
  • All meetings with case managers, tutors, and test proctoring are by appointment only. We are unable to take walk in requests at this time.
  • When entering the office, please adhere to the signage indicating mask requirements, spacing and communicating with front desk and test proctor staff. We can allow up to three individuals in line at one time.  If you see three people in line, please wait in the building lobby, or outside, until your scheduled appointment.
  • We will have limited items in the office for you to use, including pens, paper, and calculators. We encourage you to bring your own materials for working in the lab, taking exams, tutoring, and meeting with your case manager.
  • All surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized after each use, including computers and tables, tutoring tables, and testing rooms.

 

 

 

We're here to enhance access for students, faculty, staff and guests with disabilities. We help provide effective, reasonable accommodations, educating the campus community and promoting equal access and opportunity in the process.

Process for Requesting Accommodations and Services

If you are a prospective student or family member, please email us at adaptive@fgcu.edu, or call us at 239-590-7956 if you have any questions about our program.  You can also find useful information under the Prospective Student tab on our website.

If you are an incoming student for the Fall 2020 semester, or you are a current student needing accommodations for the first time, please email us your disability documentation at adaptive@fgcu.edu.  Documentation requirements are found under the Prospective Student tab on our website.  Once we receive your documentation, we will contact you to schedule a virtual appointment to register you with the office and discuss your accommodation needs. 

If you are a student currently registered with us, please refer to the Adaptive Services Canvas page for all information regarding receiving accommodations and services remotely.

We are excited to work with you and we hope to see you in person really soon.
