Who do we serve?
JLC Students thrive.
Our student population is made up of mostly students with documented learning disabilities, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD), or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with average or above average intellectual abilities.
The JLC is designed for highly capable students who need additional social and educational support as well as the tools to use those skills after graduating from University of the Ozarks.
Coordinators learn student needs individually.
Our highly trained Academic Support Coordinators take time to learn each student. They are able to provide as much or as little support as your student needs throughout their time at Ozarks. We often find though, that by the time most students are seniors, the needed time with their coordinator is significantly less each week than when they started. That is our goal.
50 years of success.
JLC students graduate and are ready to use their degree that they have earned or they are prepared for the next step in their education.
With about 95% of our graduates using their degrees 6 months after graduation, we have shown that our program and tracks are successful in creating graduates that are ready to work. The tools and coaching provided are useful long after leaving the classroom.
College is a challenging transition for most students, but can be especially challenging if you have a learning disability. The JLC provides encouraging environment, guidance, and consistency as you navigate the academic environment. We will work as hard as you do to help you reach your academic goals.Vanessa Hollowell, JLC Assistant Director
