Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990

The Art of Education University complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and state and local requirements regarding students with disabilities. AOEU will provide reasonable accommodations or services to qualified students with disabilities. 

The Art of Education University will deem a request for accommodation or services reasonable if the request: 

  • Is based on documented individual needs.
  • Does not compromise essential requirements of a course or program.
  • Does not impose a financial or administrative burden upon the university beyond that which is deemed reasonable and customary.
  • Is within the scope of the university’s control. 

The Art of Education University defines a qualified student as one who can perform the essential functions of program or course requirements with or without reasonable accommodations. The essential requirements of an academic course or program do not need modification to accommodate an individual with a disability. 

Responsibility for the selection of the most appropriate accommodation rests with the Dean of Enrollment Services at The Art of Education University and is determined on a case-by-case basis, dependent on the nature of the disability of a student. 

To receive disability services at The Art of Education University, the student must submit an Accommodation Request Form for review. The Dean of Enrollment Services will review applications and respond within ten calendar days.

All accommodations and services deemed reasonable are provided at no expense to the student and based on individual student needs. The Dean of Enrollment Services will provide approved accommodations to the student via email with an attached Faculty Notice of Accommodations.

Student Responsibilities

  • Follow the accommodation procedure outlined above.
  • Proactively submit all required documents for consideration since accommodations are not granted retroactively.
  • Provide and incur the expense for current appropriate documentation (within five years) from a qualified medical or other licensed professionals of the disability and the accommodation or service needed. 
  • Provide a signed medical opinion stating that with the reasonably requested accommodation or service, the student would be physically and/or mentally able to perform the essential functions of program or course requirements
  • On a course-by-course basis, present the Faculty Notice of Accommodations to the assigned course faculty within the first week of each course for the faculty member to comply with the granted accommodation(s) effectively.


Questions and documentation of accommodations can be requested by email through the Dean of Enrollment Services at studentservices@theartofeducation.edu.
