University of the Ozarks has been ranked in the top 10 in the country for one of the “50 best disability-friendly colleges and universityies” by the online publication college choice.
According to College Choice, the rankings “highlight universities that have strong programming and solid support services for students with needs including, but not limited to, learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD), visual and hearing impairment and those with physical needs that require special access, accommodations, service animals and/or alternative transportation.”
The publication praised Ozarks’ Jones Learning Center, which was established in 1971 as one of the first programs in the country to assist college students with learning disabilities, for having a comprehensive fee-based program that helps students with learning disabilities, AD/HD, and ASD.
