Advising

The Student Development Center (SDC) provides academic and general student development advising. The Advisors at the SDC support and guide students throughout their time at the College by helping with the following:

  • Setting general life and professional goals
  • Selecting appropriate educational courses and programs that support those goals
  • Understanding policies and procedures
  • Connecting with campus services and resources

Students can call 801-524-8151 to set an appointment to meet with their Advisor.

Advisors are each given different programs of study to ensure each student can meet with and work with a full-time employee trained in, and assigned to, their specific needs.

Tutoring

Free tutoring services are provided in the Student Development Center for all LDS Business College students.

There are drop-in labs for Accounting, Math and Writing located within the center. Other subjects are available by appointment.

  • One-on-one time with tutors cannot be guaranteed.
  • Students seeking assistance from tutors should have already attempted their homework assignments prior to seeking additional clarification.
  • Students may bring their homework to the center to work on so they can be close to tutors when assistance is needed.
  • Students are encouraged to form personal study groups with their classmates.

Mentoring

 

“Each of us, from time to time, is mentored and has chances to mentor."

Neal A Maxwell

Being successfully coached by a mentor is not established from a formal contract or even a verbal agreement, it’s identifying a safe person that you trust to invest in you and your willingness to be developed and give back.

A Successful Mentor:

  • Is someone you relate to
  • Is someone you want to become like
  • Inspires you
  • Shares with you the "unwritten rules"
  • Is willing to listen and soundboard with you
  • Will seek out personal mentoring and development for themselves
  • Can be a reference for you

 A Successful Mentee:

  • Values a mentor’s time and experience
  • Will remember and respond to counsel given
  • Seeks for ways to be a benefit to their mentor
  • Has a positive attitude
  • Is willing to change and develop
  • Strives to be a resource and mentor to others around them
  • Is willing to be vulnerable and open about challenges
  • Thoughtfully prepares and asks meaningful, inspired questions with the intent to act

Disability Services

LDS Business College (LDSBC) provides reasonable academic modifications for students with disabilities according to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. It is the responsibility of the student to self-identify and provide proper documentation in order for LDSBC to provide adequate academic modifications. The type of documentation required, as well as what is considered current documentation, depends on the individual and the nature of the disability.

Services are individualized based on what reasonable modifications the student needs to ensure that the student has equal access to the educational and administrative services and programs offered at LDSBC. There is no predetermined list of modifications for any particular disability. Modifications are determined through an interactive process that begins during a student’s intake interview with the disability services representative. Modification decisions are based on the impact of a student’s disability, any relevant academic policies, and an assessment of the essential outcomes of a course or program of study.

Temporary medical conditions such as broken limbs, surgery, flu, and pregnancy are not usually considered disabilities. However, these students may visit with a disability services representative to brainstorm options for handling their situation. Services provided by disability services (e.g., note taker, exam reader/scribe) may be considered; however, documentation from the treating physician will be required to continue the intake process.

Counseling services

LDSBC offers a short-term counseling assessment to determine the best resources, support and outside services to fit student’s needs. Students suffering with mental health, behavioral issues, or life challenges are encouraged to take advantage of this assessment. If they require more than short-term support, they will be referred to outside counseling services that can best support them in their goals.

 

Workshops regarding topics such as stress management, time management, available support services, and more are regularly offered. Available times can be found through the online campus calendar.
