Student Support

Academic Services Referral - new

We are pleased to tell you about a new feature we have added to BlackBoard called the Academic Services Referral Form.  This form is a way for you to alert the advising and student service team about any of your students who you feel would benefit from additional support.  Simply submit the short form within the GPS Blackboard home page and a member of the GPS Academic Advising team will receive an alert to reach out to the student.

You will need to be connected to the VPN in order to access this form off campus. Please click this link for more information about how to access the VPN:

Below are some reasons that you might want to refer a student to us for extra support:

  • Attendance and participation concerns
  • Missing major assignments
  • In danger of failing
  • Needs tutoring
  • Needs success coaching

Disability Services

For guidelines for Faculty Teaching Students with Disabilities, please see:

To better serve you and our students, Disability Services and the Testing Centers are moving to an online platform called "Accommodate." The Accommodate platform will replace the emailed PDF accommodation letters that you used to receive for your students.  Accommodate will also replace the Testing Appointment web form for all students (with or without a disability) who need to book an exam in the Testing Center.

For specific questions regarding Accommodate, please contact Brandon Drake in the Office of Disabilities Services (
