Students have ready access to academic guidance through the Academic Dean or faculty members. Small classes allow course instructors to recognize individual needs and to provide help. The Academic Dean meets with students as needed to discuss their progress and to offer assistance.
The Coordinator of Residential International Student Services is available for the international resident students, providing assistance for the beyond the academic realm, including needs of daily living, health care, and transportation.
Upon admission, all full-time international students are required to take the ACCUPLACER tests to aid in making placement decisions, especially for determining the necessity of ESL courses. These tests are also administered to other students when deemed necessary by the Academic Dean.
Assumption College for Sisters is committed to providing equal educational access/opportunity to students with disabilities in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998, and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments (ADAA) of 2008.
An individual with a disability who is qualified for admission, to ACS, will have the same access to programs, services, and activities as all other students. ACS will make reasonable modifications to its policies, practices, and procedures unless doing so would fundamentally alter the nature of the program, service, or activity, or pose an undo administrative or financial burden on ACS.
ACS will provide services in a manner that promotes the independence and inclusion of disabled students in all aspects of college life. To request more information, please click here.
For members of the various religious congregations attending ACS, health (both physical and mental) needs are addressed through the services provided by the respective religious congregations. Counseling services can be made available to students by licensed clinical therapists. A registered nurse is available to the students.
For the international resident students, health needs are addressed through the Coordinator of Resident International Student Services’ cooperative efforts working with local doctors and dentists in the area, and through the “Health and Wellness” classes conducted during the semester.
The mission of Assumption College for Sisters is “to provide a value-centered, two-year program” as stated in our Bulletin. At Assumption College for Sisters, administration, faculty and students are encouraged to reverence the dignity of each other. Hopefully, in this atmosphere of mutual respect, problems can be avoided or favorably resolved between individuals.
