Disability Services

The Art Institutes provide accommodations to qualified students with disabilities. The Office of Disability Support Services assists all qualified students with disabilities in acquiring reasonable and appropriate accommodations and in supporting equal access to services, programs and activities at The Art Institutes.

Students who seek reasonable accommodations should notify the Office of Disability Support Services via phone at (888) 719-8607 or via email at of their specific limitations and, if known, their specific requested accommodations. Students will be asked to supply medical documentation of the need for accommodation(s).
