When should I refer a student to Project Success?
If a student in your class is struggling with spelling, reading, writing and/or mathematics, you could refer them to Project Success. When a student is referred to our office, one of our staff members will meet with the student to ask more detailed questions and to set up additional assessments as needed. If our program is not the best resource for the student, we will help them find options on campus to better meet their needs.
How will I know if a Project Success student is in my class?

Students are encouraged to speak with you during your office hours to introduce themselves and describe their specific accommodations and learning needs. Many students will be advocating for the very first time and will be coached by the Project Success staff. Every student in the Project Success program will have an accommodation plan that indicates their individualized accommodations, based on their documentation. This will be electronically sent to you once the student has filled out their semester request on Accommodate. 

Please visit the Accommodate site for more information about Accommodate and your responsibility as a faculty or staff member.

What should I do if I have a concern about an accommodation request?

If you have any concerns about an accommodation listed on the student’s individualized Accommodation plan, it is best to first speak with the student. If you feel that a certain accommodation will jeopardize the content being assessed, please call the Project Success office to determine an appropriate resolution.

How do I work with the student to arrange accommodations?

The Project Success office works with UW Oshkosh faculty members and students to provide efficient and effective accommodation arrangements. It is primarily the student’s responsibility to complete the necessary paperwork to arrange any given accommodation.

Signatures on an Accommodation Plan

The electronic signature requested for accommodation plans is the instructor’s acknowledgment that the student shared their accommodation plan and notified the instructor of their intent to utilize accommodation in the course. 

Signing the accommodation plan will also allow instructors to easily view students in their current courses who have approved accommodation plans through both the UWO Accessibility Center and Project Success.

Accessing a Student’s Accommodation Page

Faculty and instructional staff members can view student accommodation plans by selecting the Accommodation Letters tab on the home page of Accommodate.

Both requested and signed accommodation plans will appear in the list. 

Instructors can click on a student’s name to view their plan. The accommodation letter will include whether the student is affiliated with the Accessibility Center, Project Success or both offices.

What is the best way to monitor or track the students in my course who are in Project Success?
This can be a difficult task, depending on the type of course and number of Project Success students in the course. Many instructors will keep small notes or marks in grade books to identify which students have disclosed their participation in Project Success. Confidentiality is extremely important, so it is vital that students are not asked to raise their hand, sign public sheets, or be singled-out in any way in courses because of their involvement with Project Success. Unfortunately, the Project Success office is not always able to communicate with instructors regarding a student’s participation in the program; however, it is okay to ask the student to help send email reminders, to come to office hours, or to ask to see the Accommodation Recommendation (AR) form again.
