Reeg Academic Resource Center (Reeg ARC)

The Reeg Academic Resource Center provides academic resources, support, advocacy and access through relationships that empower students across the worldwide Webster University community. The Reeg ARC helps students succeed at Webster in a number of ways, including the following:

Academic Counseling is available to all students, undergraduate and graduate, throughout Webster's global system and supports student success. Academic Counseling conversations often focus on accessing University resources, goal setting, learning styles, motivation, note taking, self-advocacy, stress-relief and management, study skills, test taking, time management and more. Academic Counseling also includes work with students on Academic Probation, with low or failing grades, with grades of Incomplete, etc.; work with transfer students and students with disability accommodations; and work with conditionally admitted students, including an extensive program for students meeting the criteria for inclusion in the Transitions program. Academic Counseling is one-on-one support that provides the assistance students need when they need it.

Assistive Technology is available for students who need additional support. While many forms of assistive technology are available only to students with applicable disability accommodations, some technology and software is available to all students. Kurzweil 3000, a program that assists students with reading and writing, is an example of free software that is available to all students, undergraduate and graduate, throughout Webster’s global system.  Additionally, Ally is built into WorldClassRoom (Canvas) and allows students options for accessible online materials loaded into their WorldClassRoom courses.

Disability Accommodations are available through the Reeg ARC, and Webster University considers admission, financial aid, program and activity applications without regard to disability. The Reeg Academic Resource Center’s Academic ADA Coordinator helps St. Louis and online students with documented physical, psychological, medical and/or learning disabilities obtain the accommodations they need to have equal access to information and equal opportunity for program success. At extended sites and non US campuses, the site director or a staff designee assists students with disability accommodations. Please see the section titled Services for Students with Disabilities for more information about disability accommodations.
