Access Center for Disability Accommodations & Adaptive Technology
Auraria Library (LM) 116
The Access Center assists qualified students with disabilities in reaching their academic potential by providing reasonable academic accommodations based on the students’ current functional limitations as mandated under ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Examples of disabilities may include learning disabilities (i.e., reading, writing, math and auditory processing); ADHD; traumatic brain injury; psychological (examples: depression, anxiety, bipolar and post-traumatic stress disorder); vision, hearing and physical and/or chronic health conditions (i.e., Multiple Sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, epilepsy and cancer). Students requesting accommodations should contact the Access Center and arrange an eligibility appointment. It will be determined which accommodations and/or services the student is eligible to receive. Examples of accommodations include extended exam time, peer note takers, interpreters, alternative text, priority registration, and disability counseling and advocacy. The Access Center also offers some of the latest adaptive technology. Approved students can receive training and access to a variety of hardware and software products in our adaptive computer lab area.
