Learning Support Guide | Tentative Schedule for Spring 2015

The University of Dayton offers a wide variety of services to support and enhance student learning, and the Learning Support Guide provides a handy way to look at them all in one place. The guide is an up-to-date list of both direct support for classes and services available to support individual students.  To print only the areas of interest to you, simply highlight and copy the sections that you want from this web page and paste them into a word processor, then print.  We will update the information in the Learning Support Guide throughout the semester, so check back again to see what might have changed.

For Departments

Departments that would like to add their learning services to this guide should complete the Departmental Learning Support Update Form.
