Accessibility Services

AUArts aims to work collaboratively and innovatively with the campus community to create an accessible, equitable, and supportive learning environment for all students. Our Accessibility Services office is open to both current and future students, and all students are encouraged to register early.

Academic Accommodations

Accessibility Services provides support for students with documented disabilities or mental health concerns in the form of Academic Accommodations – essentially modifications to course expectations while maintaining the academic integrity of the course.  Academic Accommodations are based on a demonstrated need and require medical or other professional documentation to support the request.  Students are required to register with Accessibility Services through the Accommodate App located under MyApps (this will be live in August). Please reach out to with any questions.
