Academic Accessibility Resources

Academic Accessibility Resources (AAR) provides reasonable academic accommodations for students with disabilities in accordance with the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA).

Since every student's journey is different, AAR offers academic accommodations on a case-by-case basis depending on student self report, past history of need, and current need of academic accommodations.   Even though the AAR reserves the right to request supporting documentation for requested services, we encourage students to meet with our AAR Coordinator as soon as possible because accommodations are not retroactive.

Students who receive academic accommodations complete the same course requirements as all students, and accommodations will not interfere with the fundamental requirements or objectives of the course.  Academic accommodations are meant to provide equal access to students.

Students who would like more information about receiving academic accommodations, can contact the AAR Coordinator, Pamela Downing, at pamela.downing@asbury.edu  or (859) 858-3511 X2283 to receive more information about the services available.

Confidentiality

Disability information will remain confidential unless permission is given by the student or where disclosure is required by law. Documentation is housed in the Center for Academic Excellence and the Academic Accessibility Resource office. Documentation will be kept  five years past graduation and three years past transfer or withdrawal.

For Parents
