Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

Northeastern University and the Disability Resource Center (DRC) are committed to providing disability services that enable students who qualify under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) to participate fully in the activities of the university. To receive accommodations through the DRC, students must provide appropriate documentation that demonstrates a current substantially limiting disability. Accommodations are provided based on an evaluation of the information provided by students and their clinicians, on a case-by-case basis. These services are available for, but not limited to, students with the following diagnoses:

  • Learning disabilities and/or AD(H)D
  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Chronic or degenerative disorders
  • Hearing loss
  • Mobility impairments
  • Psychiatric disorders
  • Traumatic or acquired brain injury
  • Vision impairments

Students should provide documentation to the DRC at their earliest convenience to allow for sufficient time for review. After the documentation has been reviewed, a disability specialist will contact the student regarding appropriate next steps.
