The power to be successful as a student comes in being responsible for one’s actions, learning, successes and failures. For students with disabilities it also includes knowing their own unique ways of processing information and having a set of personal tools that can be used to adapt, learn, and create strategies effectively. Learning to develop problem solving skills that can be transferred from course to course while extremely valuable can sometimes be a challenge to students with disabilities.
Florida Gateway College is interested in providing the tools and support students need to reach their academic goals while recognizing that “life happens” (financial, health, emotional wellbeing, relationships and family, transitioning from military to civilian life). The BayCare Student Assistance Program is a valuable resource available to all students through My FGC and provides information and tools which will assist students in learning to balance the various aspects of their life.
