Disability Support Services


Antioch University Midwest (AUM) is committed to ensuring disability non-discrimination as outlined in Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, and related laws. In accordance with these laws, Antioch University does not exclude or discriminate against otherwise qualified students with disabilities.

The Office of Disability Support Services (DSS) provides resources for the AUM community to build effective understanding and implementation of disability civil rights. One key role of the office of DSS is to ensure that all students have equal opportunity to benefit from and have access to programs and services.

All students seeking reasonable accommodations must contact the Disability Support Services coordinator as early as possible. Students are responsible for providing documentation of the nature and extent of the disability.

Each support service or academic accommodation provided on the basis of a disability is determined on an individual, case-by-case basis, as supported by the documentation and warranted by the nature of the course, insofar as the service or accommodation does not compromise the fundamental academic integrity of the curriculum and is otherwise consistent with University policies. The DSS coordinator works collaboratively with the student to ensure reasonable accommodation needs are met.

If you have any questions or if you would like to request this information in a different format, please contact our Disability Support Services Coordinator, Karen Crist, at dss.aum@antioch.edu.
