Academic Support Center

Troy: Hart Hall Second Floor, 244-2272

Sage students represent a diverse range of academic, educational and developmental backgrounds. The Academic Support Center provides opportunities for students to enhance their academic skills and to achieve personal growth and development. Students are encouraged to become responsible, independent learners who are capable of achieving their fullest potential.

The Academic Support Center provides undergraduate students with opportunities to enhance academic skills through the provision of a comprehensive range of academic support services. Students may utilize individual and small group tutoring for many 100- and 200-level courses and may seek assistance from the Writing Studios for help with writing assignments for any course.  Students are encouraged to apply for tutoring early in the semester to allow time for appropriate scheduling. Workshops are provided, which cover a range of topics including time-management, study skills, note-taking and test preparation. Students may also meet with an academic counselor to identify which services will most effectively address their needs.  For further information or to request an appointment with a tutor or academic counselor, students should stop by Hart Hall.

Disabilities Services

Students with Disabilities

 The Sage Colleges is committed to ensuring that students with documented disabilities have equal access to college programs, services and activities. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act of 2008 protect otherwise qualified individuals from discrimination on the basis of their disabilities.

 At The Sage Colleges, students with documented disabilities are encouraged to register with the Disabilities Services Office early in their academic career in order to receive reasonable accommodations. . Appropriate documentation will assist the student and the college in determining reasonable accommodations as stipulated under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other pertinent state and federal regulations. . Students requesting accommodations must register with the Disabilities Office by first scheduling an   appointment with a Disabilities Director and present appropriate documentation prior to receiving services.

At that time, students may submit appropriate and current documentation in most cases within three years of the current date, from a qualified clinician or healthcare professional. This documentation must be a comprehensive assessment including   the student's disability, the impact of the disability, and its relation to the recommended accommodations. The Disabilities Services Director will review the documentation and determine reasonable accommodations. For more information regarding documentation, visit the Disabilities Office.

During the first two weeks of each semester, students registered with the Disabilities Services are encouraged to meet with a staff member to discuss accommodations for their courses. At the meeting with the Disabilities Director, letters will be completed to inform professors of the approved accommodations students have requested in their course. Students are encouraged to meet with their professors, review the accommodation letter, and discuss the implementation. Professors are encouraged to direct questions regarding accommodations to the Disabilities Services.

 The Office of Disabilities Services serves as an advocate for students with disabilities as well as a resource.
