Center for Disability Services

Student Responsibilities

AUM’s philosophy is that individuals with disabilities have the right to full and self-directed participation in postsecondary education as defined by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008. At the same time, students with disabilities have certain responsibilities regarding their educational experiences at AUM.

Student Expectations

Student accommodation responsibilities

The student will:

  • Identify disabilities to CDS in order to access accommodations and services available.
  • Provide required documentation from a qualified provider identifying the disability and its effects, requirements, and recommended accommodations.
  • Use Accommodate to manage accommodation requests and communications. For students not currently receiving CDS services, request accommodations here.
  • Meet with faculty at the beginning of each semester to discuss arrangements for accommodations, to complete the Accommodation Contract and to clarify the impact of the disability.
  • Follow the specific procedures for accessing accommodations.
  • Maintain the academic standards set by AUM.
  • Notify CDS of the need for services or any change in service requirements in a timely manner.
  • Update service file with CDS staff if returning to AUM following more than one year’s absence.

ADA coverage for students with all disabilities begins upon enrollment with the Center for Disability Services and not before. You can access Accommodate Instructions here.
