AAAC-Student Access Services at the University of Kansas works to ensure students who experience disability have an equal opportunity to participate in educational offerings. We do this by facilitating the Accommodation Process through our electronic system, AAAC Access-Online.
This electronic system allows a student to complete their AAAC application online and upload disability documentation; this application is then reviewed and a student will be invited to schedule an initial appointment with an access specialist. At that initial appointment an individualized accommodation plan will be developed and the student will learn how to navigate the Access-Online system in order to email accommodation notification letters to instructors and schedule exams in the AAAC Testing Center.
Instructors have access to a faculty portal which allows them to view a dashboard listing their courses, and their students who have requested accommodations in their courses. The system allows instructors to upload exams into the Access-Online system and receive completed exams in this electronic manner. The faculty portal assists instructors in managing multiple accommodation requests in one online location.
The AAAC Access-Online staff are happy to assist students and instructors with questions and suggestions. Watch this site for continuously updated guides, videos, and tips for being responsive to requests for reasonable accommodation.
