Office of Academic Access
EMU is a caring community that respects individual differences. Each student brings strengths that make him or her a vital member of the community. Our goal is to encourage the expression of these strengths by providing a climate where students with documented disabilities experience equal access to the courses and programs of the university.
Faculty and staff support individual students with reasonable accommodations in classroom policies and procedures according to documented needs. Faculty and staff also help students develop and use strategies that promote students' independence and personal success.

EMU seeks to meet the needs of all admitted students. We are committed to provide both physical and programmatic access with reasonable accommodations for all qualified documented students who are served through the Office of Academic Access. Our policies for students with disabilities are consistent with the necessity of ensuring reasonable accommodations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1988, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008.
