Students with Disability

In accordance to our Non-Discrimination Policy and commitment to bringing equal and accessible high quality education to all of our students, we have adopted the Americans with Disabilities Act’s (ADA) definition which defines a person with a disability as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity.

Who is Eligible?

  • Students with physical disabilities
  • Students with chronic illnesses
  • Students with learning disabilities
  • Students with mental health issues
  • Students with emotional disabilities
  • Students with temporary disabilities (i.e. pregnancy, major surgery, major injury, concussion, etc.)


Accommodations AHUSC provides reasonable accommodations in compliance with local, state and federal law. To receive accommodations through AHUSC, a prospective student is required to self-elect to disclose their disability during their application to any of our programs and follow the steps to receive accommodations. Approved accommodation requests submitted after courses have begun will be effective as of the date your completed request was received by our Student Services Department.

AHUSC understands that disabilities can come after enrollment into any of our programs. In such instances, students can use this Disability Accommodation Request Form to complete an Accommodation Request.
