Disability Services

We believe education should be accessible to everyone. If you have temporary health issues or a permanent disability, we have services to help meet your needs.

The University of Phoenix Disability Services Office provides services to students with temporary health issues or permanent disabilities. You can learn about eligibility requirements and how to apply for accommodations through this office. We’re here to assist you in a timely manner, regardless of location or modality of your course of study.

After you complete the application process, a Disability Services Advisor will work with you to determine your eligibility and identify what types of accommodations are available. We will not disclose health issues or specific diagnoses. It’s your choice whether to disclose your health information to faculty members or classmates.

If you require assistance during an emergency situation, you must self-disclose this need to a Disability Services Advisor. The advisor — in conjunction with the Campus Security Authority — should develop a personal emergency plan for you, including specific notification and evacuation procedures, regardless of whether you intend to apply for or receive classroom accommodations.
