The Learning Access Program (LAP) is Stockton University's disability support services office.
Our role is to educate, advocate and facilitate equal access while maintaining a welcoming, inclusive and accessible campus community. LAP engages in an interactive process with each student to determine appropriate accommodations on an individualized case-by-case, class-by-class basis.
The Learning Access Program reviews students' documentation and collaborates with students, faculty and staff to arrange reasonable accommodations that support students' individual needs.
The Learning Access Program works with students, faculty, staff and families to ensure that students with disabilities are provided with equal access to all university programs, activities and services in accordance with Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (amended 2008). Faculty, staff and familes are encouraged to review the provided resources to learn more about LAP services and operations.
