Have a Question? Just AASC!

Academic Accessibility; photo of students and laptopSometimes experiencing a disability or long-term/substantial  illness or injury can create barriers to learning. AASC addresses academic accessibility to remove such barriers by:

  • helping faculty plan coursework which is more accessible to more students and/or
  • helping students and faculty plan reasonable accommodations to remove barriers to learning

At Principia, we do not diagnose disabilities, though we work with students who have confirmed or suspected disabilities. We also help any student assess their strengths and needs in regard to skill-building and/or accommodations which would be necessary to remove barriers to learning.

Support we provide:

  • accommodation letters for students experiencing disability and/or long-term/substantial illness or injury
  • support to student and faculty in implementation of accommodations
  • auxiliary aids and assistive technology for use in classrooms and with required assignments
  • a student success study area (an environment conducive to productive study-buddying)
