Student Disability Services (SDS)

Antioch University New England is committed to ensuring disability non-discrimination as outlined in Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and related laws. In accordance with these laws, Antioch University New England does not exclude or discriminate against otherwise qualified students with disabilities.

The Office of Student Disability Services (SDS) provides resources for the campus community to build effective understanding and implementation of disability civil rights. One key role of the office of SDS is to ensure that all students have equal opportunity to benefit from and have access to programs and services.

All students requesting accommodations must complete and submit the Student Request for Services form to the SDS office and submit recent documentation of disability from a qualified health care professional using the Student Request for Medical Documentation form.

Reasonable accommodation is determined after review of the submitted documentation, follow-up conversations with the student and, in some cases, consultation with the student’s faculty. Each support service or academic accommodation is provided on the basis of a disability is determined on an individual, case-by-case basis, as supported by the documentation and warranted by the nature of the course, insofar as the service or accommodation does not compromise the fundamental academic integrity of the curriculum and is otherwise consistent with University policies.

If you have any questions or if you would like to request this information in a different format, please contact Fran Ziperstein, Director of Student Disability Services at 603-283-2438 or by email.
