The Disability Support Services (DSS) Office supports and advocates for students who experience disabilities. DSS coordinates support services and reasonable accommodations for APU students who experience disabilities, and provides resources for the university and community.
Arranging for Accommodations
Your Role as a Student
We encourage all university students to be their own advocates. Students transitioning from high school to APU should schedule a meeting with DSS, provide current diagnostic and evaluative reports, and request reasonable accommodations that are supported by documentation.
Schedule a meeting with the DSS Coordinator by calling 907-564-8287 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students will supply documentation to the DSS Coordinator to establish eligibility. All evaluations, test results and medical records are confidential and are used for the sole purpose of determining eligibility for accommodations. The nature of the disability or temporary disabling condition is not released to any other party except with the written consent of the student.
APU recognizes the best practices for documentation of disability that have been established by the Association on Higher Education and Disability.
Reasonable accommodations include modifications and adjustments that do not fundamentally alter or lower the standards of an instructional program.
DSS Office is located in the Atwood Center Building (First Floor).
