What services do you offer?
Many students need a little extra help from time to time. The Learning Resource Center is the place to go for tutoring, supplemental instruction, test preparation and study strategies. Graduate students and part-time faculty from the English department will help your student with writing projects or writing-based exams. Many individual departments, such as math, chemistry and business, offer their own tutoring and supplemental instruction courses.
At Cal State Northridge, we strive to create an inclusive environment in which people of all abilities can achieve their goals. Disability Resources and Educational Services serves students who have a wide range of visible and hidden disabilities. Services and accommodations include alternative testing, note taking, Braille or other alternate media, American Sign Language interpreters, ergonomic chairs and tables for the classroom, and assistive computer technology.
These services are part of the reason Cal State Northridge is such a popular choice among students who are deaf and hard of hearing. We offer academic advisement, interpretation, career counseling and tutoring by subject-field experts, all in American Sign Language. Interpretation in American Sign Language is available for classes and on-campus activities and events. Many of these services for deaf students are offered through our National Center on Deafness.
Good health promotes academic success. At the Klotz Student Health Center, students can obtain free and low-cost care for routine or urgent medical matters. The Student Health Center also has dental and optometry clinics, and offers integrative therapies such as acupuncture, massage and chiropractic.
If your student is feeling stressed or struggling with an emotional problem, licensed professionals at University Counseling Services can help. Services are free and confidential.
