The Student Life Director can facilitate one-on-one support in all academic courses, as well as addressing concerns with writing skills, study skills, and time management. These services are available to all PrattMWP students on an appointment basis. Students who have been assessed and have IEPs are encouraged to register with the Student Life Director.

The PrattMWP writing lab is also available to help students with their writing assignments. The writing lab hours are posted in the Library at the start of every semester.

Students Requiring Learning Accommodations
Students who have a document learning disability are encouraged to seek the assistance of our Student Life Director immediately upon arrival at PrattMWP. Please send any documents to the attention of the Student Life Director as soon as possible.

In college students must become "self-advocates" for learning accommodation services. Therefore, it is critical that you inform the Student Life Director and your faculty of your specific learning accommodations.

If you believe that you are struggling in class due to an undocumented learning disability, the Student Life Director will connect you with a local agency who can assess your learning style and help develop a plan appropriate to your needs.



PrattMWP boasts one of the greatest academic art programs and learning environments in the northeast.
