Accommodations for Individuals with Disabilities
Atlantis University (AU) recognizes and values all our students, including those with special needs and/or disabilities. The university does not discriminate against persons with disabilities that can satisfy the University’s admission requirements and recognizes such person’s right to participate in or benefit from the educational programs offered by the university. When necessary, Atlantis University will make reasonable accommodations to enable students to participate in the programs offered by AU. The University endeavors to keep its policies and programs in compliance with appropriate federal and state laws.
If you are a prospective student with specific needs, Atlantis University welcomes you. The faculty and administration work together to extend educational and spiritual opportunities to all students, regardless of circumstances, and we encourage you to join with us in this effort.
Atlantis University offers various accommodations to all students who qualify as specific-needs students. However, while AU will make an effort to accommodate all disabilities, certain disabilities may not be capable of a reasonable accommodation.
Accommodations are adjustments to a student’s academic routine specifically intended to offset physical differences or other circumstances that limit substantively that student’s ability to succeed academically.
Examples of accommodations are:
- Extra time on exams
- Taking exams in a quiet location
- Recording lectures
- Printed lecture notes or note-takers (scribes)
- Designated parking area
The granting and management of student accommodations are the responsibility of the Atlantis University academic advising office. The University legal obligation is to provide reasonable accommodations as defined by applicable federal and states laws. It is the university responsibility to determine to the best of its ability what accommodations are reasonable.
