Distance Education Academic Resources

Resources for Online + Distance Students

Whether near or far, we want to ensure that you have the necessary resources available to you to accomplish your goals.

Student Accessibility + Support Services

The Office of Student Accessibility and Support Services facilitates and coordinates accommodations and services for students with documented disabilities at Emporia State University. ESU has a long history of providing services for people with disabilities. We are committed to meeting the unique needs of our students. The office also promotes a successful transition to college and work, campus and community resource information, disability awareness, and voter registration information.

Students are encouraged to register with the office prior to enrolling in classes. Students can self-identify to the office by submitting documentation and making an appointment to address individual needs. Documentation requirements are unique to each disabling condition.

A new, easy-to-use literacy software called Read and Write Gold is now available. It is an innovative literacy support software program designed to support and improve reading, writing, research, and study skills for all individuals, including English language learners.

The Office of Student Accessibility and Support Services is located at Plumb Hall 106, Campus Box 4023. Contact the office for reference materials: (620)341-6637, (620)341-6640 (Fax) or disabser@emporia.edu. 

Library Research Resources

The William Allen White Library supports the academic, research, and service programs of ESU. To meet individual and Distance Education needs of university, community, and Kansas citizens, the library provides access to resources in print, multimedia, and electronic formats. Students also have access to the Kellogg Online Catalog and other online search tools. Contact Terri Summey (Coordinator for Library Services to Distance students) for further questions.
