Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
The Art of Education University is committed to complying with all applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. The Art of Education University does not discriminate against any qualified applicant because of an individual’s disability or perceived disability. In keeping with the ADA, regulations in 29 CFR Part 1630 (1992) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), The Art of Education University will provide reasonable academic accommodations for students who provide formal documentation outlining their disabilities and their reasonable and appropriate requests. The institution admits students regardless of race, color, national origin, disability, sex, or age.
Qualifying for Services
To receive disability services at The Art of Education University, the student must submit an accommodation application form for review. The Dean of Student Services and Director of Compliance will review applications within ten calendar days.
Online courses at The Art of Education University have many accommodations built within them including the following:
The Dean of Student Services evaluates the accommodations application and makes a recommendation to the Director of Compliance. The Director of Compliance makes the final determination of whether appropriate and reasonable accommodations are warranted and can be provided to the individual based on the information received.
Accommodations may include but are not limited to the following:
All accommodations and services deemed reasonable are provided at no expense to the student and are based on individual student needs. The Dean of Student Services will provide approved accommodations to the student via email with an attached Faculty Notice of Accommodations.
Contact the Dean of Student Services with questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A graduate student with a disability has the right to appropriate academic adjustments under Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Dean of Student Services and the Director of Compliance make decisions regarding the nature of the adjustments. Provisions protecting the student from discrimination on the basis of a disability are guaranteed. The student has the right to file a grievance concerning any allegation of failure to comply with the laws, regulations, and procedures set forth for people with disabilities. Grievances will be processed through AOEU’s Grievance Policy.
It is the student’s responsibility to seek available assistance and make their individual learning needs known to the instructor or the Dean of Student Services at the time of enrollment or as the need arises.
Students with documented disabilities may formally request accommodations at any time however, students are encouraged to request accommodations in advance, as early as during the application process, to allow for sufficient time for instructors to make appropriate arrangements. Students submit formal requests for accommodations to the Dean of Students, and together with the Director of Compliance a decision is made as to whether and how the request should be honored. A Notice of Accommodations will be emailed directly to the student that outlines the decision. It is the student’s responsibility to share the Notice of Accommodations with individual course instructors at the beginning of each course.
Students with disabilities must demonstrate they have acquired the same amount of content knowledge as other students enrolled in the course for which they are requesting accommodations and are obligated to use the accommodations responsibly.
Faculty Rights and Responsibilities
Faculty members may request verification of the disability from the Dean of Student Services and the Director of Compliance in the form of a letter. The accommodation(s) requested must not compromise the content of the course or the requirements for satisfactory course completion.
Information regarding a student’s disability will remain confidential. Confidentiality of records is required by law and maintained within AOEU’s Confidentiality and Privacy Policies. The Art of Education University may only disclose the specific nature of a student’s disability upon written release from the student.
Students can request a copy of their individual disability documentation from the Dean of Student Services.
Additional policy information may be found in the current edition of the Graduate Catalog.
