True to our Christian heritage, the University of the Ozarks prepares students from diverse religious, cultural, educational and economic backgrounds to live life fully. The Jones Learning Center (JLC), a comprehensive support program at Ozarks, is designed to serve students with documented learning disabilities, AD/HD, or autism spectrum disorder who can think critically, but need additional support to demonstrate their knowledge in a traditional academic environment.
The Jones Learning Center (JLC) is a comprehensive support program designed to serve students with documented learning disabilities, Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD), or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) who have average or above average intellectual abilities.

Established in 1971 as a fee-based program, the JLC has a current staff-to-student ratio of 1:5.
