Student Support Services

In order to truly be successful in online learning, students must utilize the resources of the campus.  Such services as Academic Support, Disability Services, Career Counseling, Advising, Wellness, Enrollment, and the campus Bookstore are essential for all students.  Students should review the services and support offered on-campus as well as virtually.

Academic Support

Testing Center
Testing Services is dedicated to providing alternatives to on-campus course work that will assist students with their educational goals. They offer services that can accelerate any degree program by offering credit by examination. The University of Central Oklahoma testing center now offers convenient, fast and secure online registration for the exams listed on their website.

The Academic Support Center provides free tutoring services in English and Writing. All of the tutors at the ASC are trained and must have a high level of proficiency in the area in which they are tutoring.  Writing tutors can assist you in the preparation of term papers for all classes. But remember, they will not do the work for you, they will guide you in the right direction but it's up to you to complete your own paper.


Disability Services

The Office of Disability Support Services provides and coordinates mandated support services, auxiliary aids, and accommodations for students with disabilities, which allow them to gain equal access to an education. This office also serves as a resource to the University community and promotes awareness so that these students can participate in all facets of University life.
The University of Central Oklahoma complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American with Disabilities Act of 1990. Students with disabilities who need special accommodations must make their requests by contacting the Disability Support Services offices at (405) 974-2549. The DSS Office is located in the Nigh University Center, Room 309. Students should also notify the instructor of special accommodation needs by the end of the first week of class.
