      • Please make sure your supporting documentation is scanned and uploaded at the time of registration.
    • Please make an appointment with Amber Larson (alarson@wooster.edu), Director of the Academic Resource Center, or Kaylynne Mahone (kmahone@wooster.edu), Assistant Director, to provide a history of your accessibility needs and what has supported you in the past.
  • Returning Academic Resource Center Students:
    • If you have worked with the Academic Resource Center before and/or have a ClockWork account already established for you, please contact Amber Larson (alarson@wooster.edu) or Kaylynne Mahone (kmahone@wooster.edu) with questions you may have or with changes to accommodation requests.
    • Each semester, be sure to Request Accommodation Letters via ClockWork to “renew” and to notify your instructors of your accommodations.

Academic Accommodations

If you are seeking accommodations for a documented disability, the Academic Resource Center will help coordinate appropriate accommodations via the provision of academic, housing, and dining services. Accommodations will be considered once the student has presented clear documentation of the disability and discussed disability-related needs with an Academic Resource Center staff member. 

Register for Academic Accommodations:

  1. Register for services by accessing Wooster's ClockWork Portal link and clicking on the "Register Here" Button.
    Please note: when logging into ClockWork, please only use your first initial, last name and school year. For example, Alex Apex, Class of 2023 would register as "Aapex23".
