Accommodations for students with disabilties

The Academic Support and Access Center is responsible for reviewing documentation of disabilities presented by students who may request accommodations at the university. Once a disability has been documented in the ASAC, each semester a student may request letters for faculty to verify approved accommodations. Students are encouraged to meet with their professors during office hours to discuss their needs in relation to a particular course, and to determine with each professor the best arrangement for accommodations. 

Faculty may consult with an ASAC counselor at any time if they have questions about arrangements for a student's accommodations.  To consult on testing or note taking arrangements, faculty may contact the testing and note taking coordinators at 202-885-3489 or exams@american.edu or notes@american.edu.
