Student Crisis Fund Information

In an effort to provide much-needed assistance for Lander University students facing immediate financial hardships because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lander Foundation has launched a Student Crisis Fund.

Our goal is to provide students with needed emergency assistance that can help them remain in school during this challenging time and continue to make progress toward their Lander degree. Please note, this funding is not intended to be used as a consistent supplement, nor replace or supplement existing financial aid or other educational funding sources. Requests must be urgent in nature, and students may apply for funds when they have exhausted all other resources. This funding does not have to be repaid. The COVID-19 Student Crisis Fund is sustained by the continual contributions of generous alumni, parents, faculty, students, staff and friends of the University.

If you are in need of such assistance, we encourage you to apply. You can find more information about the fund, the types of expenses covered, eligibility requirements, and the application form by clicking here.   

If you have any questions about this fund or the application form, please contact Kim Shannon, kshannon@lander.edu.

 

Fall 2021 Study Abroad

Due to the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated uncertainties and restrictions on international travel, Lander University has suspended all Fall 2021 study abroad programs. See more information here.

 

Student Employment - Interest Form

The Office of Career Services and Student Employment has developed an employment intake form for students who would be interested in working remotely at this time for the university. Please note that employment with Lander University is not guaranteed, however; the University is working diligently to identify students who are in significant financial need to connect them with possible remote project/work-from-home based opportunities for various campus offices and departments.

You can find the link for the Student Worker Interest Intake Form by clicking here. If you have any questions about this form, please contact Amanda Morgan, asmorgan@lander.edu, or Courtney Carpenter, ccarpenter@lander.edu.

 

Writing Center E Tutoring

The Writing Center is offering convenient E-Tutoring for students.

What is E Tutoring? Through our appointment software, we have an option for distance tutoring. This means you can email a tutor your essay draft through your appointment time, and quickly receive feedback from them.

How to use E Tutoring: You can use Lander.MyWConline.com to log in and create an appointment. You need to attach the essay draft (and preferably the assignment sheet and rubric) to the appointment. Once you create the appointment and attach the essay, a tutor will read it and return feedback in an hour. To get the best feedback, be sure to upload a full draft and any other information. 

Questions? We look forward to helping you! You can learn more about our E Tutoring services here, or if you have any questions, email Brittany Cuenin, Writing Center Director, at bcuenin@lander.edu, or Courtney Myers at cmyers@lander.edu.

 

Academic Success Center

The Academic Success Center is happy to inform you that we have online tutoring available. You will need to schedule an appointment at www.lander.mywconline.com. Same-day appointments are not available; students must sign up at least 24 hours before their desired appointment time. 

To access your online appointment, you will log into WC Online and open your scheduled appointment time and then click on “Start or Join Online Consultation”. Students having trouble logging into WC Online should email Anissa Lawrence at alawrence@lander.edu. We recommend that you log into the system a few minutes before the start time and be prepared. Have your notes and textbooks available. Please be advised that our tutors will not have a copy of the textbook during the tutoring session. You may enter your online tutoring appointment from a laptop, computer, or mobile device. If your device does not have video capability, WC online has a whiteboard as well as live chat. 

Remember to remain in communication with your professors as they will be able to offer you guidance as we transition from traditional to online learning.
