Accommodations and Support Services for Students who have Disabilities

Mission Statement:

Classroom Services facilitates equal access for students with disabilities to educational programs at the Academy of Art University. In alignment with the Academy’s commitment to uphold the principles of the Americans with Disabilities Act, reasonable accommodations and support services are provided that ensure an equal opportunity for all students to reach their fullest potential and prepare for the professional world of art and design.

Working in cooperation with Classroom Services, you can learn to:

  • Manage academic and disability-related challenges
  • Understand your individual learning style, including your strengths and weaknesses
  • Become your own advocate who can successfully interact with instructors, staff members, and peers, and compete on a level playing field

We will support your success by meeting with you one-on-one to:

  • Provide you with individualized help according to your needs
  • Work with you to determine appropriate accommodations
  • Communicate with you throughout the semester to monitor the effectiveness of your approved accommodations
  • Refer you to qualified professionals when necessary for educational testing or personal concerns
  • Recommend useful educational support services on campus and additional resources in the community
