Accessibility Services

The John F. Kennedy University Office of Accessibility Services determines effective and reasonable academic accommodations for students with disabilities. In addition, the office serves as a liaison with faculty and staff, and provides students with disability-related information and referrals. The Office of Accessibility Services also works closely with University departments and colleges in reviewing students' requests for services and prescribing appropriate academic accommodations.

What are Academic Accommodations?
Academic accommodations compensate for the functional and educational limitations resulting from a disability. Accommodations are not designed to give students an advantage, but rather to allow them equal access and opportunity in the classroom. Although equality of opportunity will not guarantee equality of results, it will give students with disabilities the opportunity to live up to their potential for success.

The types of academic accommodations available are:

  • Assistive Listening Device: A sound amplifying device is available for loan, which may be attached to a hearing aid or used separately.
  • Adaptive Technology Equipment: Items available for use are: Kurzweil Reader's Edge; Dragon Naturally Speaking voice-activated software; Screen Readers; and Zoom text.
  • Books in Accessible Formats: Books can be attained in electronic or tape formats.
  • Note-taking Assistance: Arrangements can be made for classmates to assist students who are unable to take notes.
  • Testing Accommodations: The following arrangements can be made: additional time to complete exams, reduced-distraction testing sites and alternative testing formats.

How do JFK University students apply for an accommodation?
Students with disabilities must contact and be found eligible to receive services by the Office of Accessibility Services prior to receiving any accommodations. Documentation of the disability must be submitted to the Office of Accessibility Services for review. If the accommodations for the term are approved, the director will supply an official accommodations letter to the student, which can then be copied by the student to give to their current instructors.

Confidentiality
Students with disabilities have the same rights to privacy as provided by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), as do all other John F. Kennedy University students.
