Learning Specialist Support Services

In addition to our peer facilitated services, we offer professional learning specialist services in developmental reading, writing, math, and science. Our professional learning specialists meet with students who need help adjusting to the rigors of college level academics. Specialist services are individualized to meet students' particular learning needs. 

Learning Specialist services are free for students but by referral only. Students who think they might benefit from this service can reach out to us at success@manhattan.edu

Learning Specialist Policies and Procedures*

*Updated Fall 2021

  • Matriculated Manhattan College students with a referral from the Director are allowed appointments with a Learning Specialist. Requests must be made via email at success@manhattan.edu.
  • All sessions are one-on-one individual appointments. No exceptions.

  • Students who are 15 minutes late to a 1 hour appointment will have their appointment cancelled and the slot forfeited to any eligible student waiting.

  • Students will receive a warning via Jasper Connect after their first cancellation. Upon a second cancellation, student appointment privileges will be revoked permanently for the semester. Cancellations are reset at the beginning of each semester.

  • Students who no-show once will have their appointment privileges revoked permanently for the semester and will be notified via Jasper Connect. No show totals are reset at the beginning of each semester. 

  • Students are allowed appointments up to one (1) week in advance. 

  • It is the expectation that all students working with a LS will be an active participant in the learning process. If a student is; not attending class, not taking notes in class, resistant to the support being offered, or any other reason leading to the advisor viewing the students behavior as indifferent towards their studies, the advisor is within their right to revoke the student's LS privileges.
