The American University of Rome does not discriminate based on differing abilities and is committed to providing all students with a high quality educational experience.
While not bound by the “Americans with Disabilities Act” and other legislation, the American University of Rome still makes every attempt to provide all reasonable accommodations.

Possible accommodations may include:

  • Extended time for papers or projects
  • Time-and-a-half for testing
  • Testing with limited distractions
  • Tape lectures (with appropriate permission)
  • Use of a computer for essay exams

In order to request learning accommodations, the student needs to submit medical or psychological documentation, specifying detailed and reasonable accommodation(s), two weeks prior arrival. Please note all documentation must be valid and current (within the past 4 years) and issued by a licensed specialist.

After all required documentation has been received, the Dean’s Office will consult with faculty and staff to determine available accommodations.
