The Lion Plus Program at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) is a fee-based holistic student support program for students with documented disabilities who have affiliated with ARC. The scope of Lion Plus Program services extends beyond legally mandated (ADA) accommodations, which remain free-of-charge, and are a critical component of equitable educational access. For freshmen, the purpose of the Lion Plus Program is to assist with all aspects of transitioning from the high school environment to the TCNJ community, with campus connectedness as a focal point. For upper class students (sophomores, juniors and seniors), the Lion Plus Program is centered on retention, continued integration and academic and interpersonal independence.
The Lion Plus Program will be identifying openings for the coming semester. If you are interested, please contact Dixita Malatesta, Learning Specialist, Accessibility Resource Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If financial assistance is needed for participation in this program, please let her know.
