The University of North Carolina School of the Arts is open and accessible to all qualified students. The policy for serving students with disabilities is consistent with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
Accessibility Resources is one of an array of resources offered to students under the office of Learning Resources and is provided to students with a documented disability. Students may request disability-related accommodations in the academic or living environment at UNCSA by supporting a request through documentation that meets the university's guidelines. For information on the process for documenting a disability see Steps for Accommodations for College Students. It is recommended that students submit documentation of their disability and request accommodations as early as possible in the semester as accommodations are not provided retroactively.
