Disability Services

Neumann University is committed to providing equal education opportunities to all qualified students with disabilities. In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Neumann University will provide appropriate and reasonable accommodations, which allow equal access to its educational programs.


Neumann University’s TRiO Student Support Services (SSS) Program helps you progress each semester and develop academically and personally to graduate and achieve success. The program’s mission mirrors that of the University – to encourage life-long learners and to educate a diverse community by sharing the gift of knowledge in the service of others.



Program For Success

              Are you on academic probation?

              Do you feel that you are losing control over your school work?

Do you need help with managing the academic demands of college?


  If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, Program for Success can help you gain control over your studies.   
Academic Coaching

Meeting regularly with an academic coach could help students to gain control of their academics and improve their GPAs. Just as athletes improve their performance on the court, field, or pool by working with their coach, the same concept applies to students with regards to their academic performance. Our academic coaches meet individually with students to provide an assessment of their current study skills and develop strategies to achieve academic success.

Our academic coaching services are available to:
Students with Learning Differences
Students on Academic Probation
Faculty Referrals
