Online classes can present challenges for some students with disabilities. Adelphi's Student Access Office has worked overtime during the global health crisis to ensure assistive technologies are available for students who need them.
Through assistance, advocacy and reasonable accommodations, Adelphi provides an accessible and supportive campus environment.
Assist your student in the college transition.
One of the Top 50 Nationwide
College Choice has cited Adelphi as one of the country’s most accommodating schools for students with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and students on the autism spectrum.
Accommodations for Online Learning
Due to Adelphi’s response to COVID-19, and moving 70% of courses to an online format for the Fall 2020 semester, there may be accommodations that may no longer apply as well as accommodations that may need to be considered. If you are a student experiencing a barrier to online courses please follow the Student Access Office petition process by submitting a new petition for reasonable accommodations through our website. If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
