Accessible Education Services
Harvard strives to create an environment in which all students can pursue their dreams and flourish both academically and personally. The Accessible Education Office helps qualified-disabled undergraduate students to have accessible coursework, housing, transportation, and activities; assesses eligibility for services and accommodations and collaborates with faculty and staff; and makes sure recommended services are implemented in a way that fits each student’s needs.
“Qualified-disabled” refers to a disabled person who meets the academic and technical standards requisite to admission and participation in the educational program or activity.
Such disabilities may include those with emotional or mental illness; illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, or AIDS; learning disabilities such as dyslexia and dysgraphia; and physical impairments such as severely restricted vision, hearing and mobility. In addition, an individual doesn’t necessarily need to meet all the criteria for a disability to benefit from the services our office offers.
For more information, please contact the Accessible Education Office.
