Noel Center for Disability Resources

The Noel Center for Disability Resources provides accommodations and services to qualifying students with disabilities. Upon acceptance to the University, the student should register for services by filling out the Request for Services form on the Center’s homepage. Professional documentation of the disability and its functional limitations should be sent to the Noel Center for Disability Resources. Once eligibility has been determined the student is assigned an Accessibility Advisor who will collaboratively work with the student to determine the appropriate accommodations and services. This person will work with the student throughout his or her time at Gardner-Webb. Some of the accommodations/services that may be provided if the student has supportive documentation include, but are not limited to, note-takers, extended-time testing, materials in alternative format, lab assistants, interpreters, orientation and mobility training and use of adaptive technology. The student may receive help in developing effective study skills as well as organizational and test-taking strategies.
