Disability services provides assistance to students with physical, psychological, ADD/ADHD and learning disabilities who are eligible for reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. These include: chronic illness/medical conditions, attendance/absence accommodations due to a disability/illness/medical condition, and pregnancy or related conditions.
Services are provided differently in college than in grades K – 12. In that setting, typically accommodations are coordinated through an IEP or 504 plan on a cycle by parents/guardians, teachers and other staff. Post-secondary institutions are not required to identify an individual as a student with disabilities. At KCAI, students must request accommodations and provide appropriate documentation to support requests.
Disability accommodations are an interactive process, made on a case-by-case basis upon review of documentation and after conversations with the student. Accommodations may be requested at any time during the semester, but are not retroactive. Students are encouraged to make requests as soon as possible, as certain accommodations require time to arrange. Please follow the instructions on the form below to request accommodations. The form will address documentation and next steps in the process.
