Can I receive tutoring through the Accessible Education Center?
The Accessible Education Center does not offer tutoring on course content. The University Tutoring and Academic Engagement Center (TAEC) provides a variety of resources, including tutoring, strategy building, academic coaching, workshops, and test preparation support.
Does the Accessible Education Center offer any scholarships?
Yes! Please see our Scholarships page for more details. As the AEC receives new scholarship information, announcements will be posted there. Additional resources can be found through the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
If I attend an initial meeting with the Accessible Education Center, does this mean that I must use the services?
No. Our office encourages students to use whatever available resources are necessary to succeed in college. However, you are encouraged to meet with the AEC at the beginning of your college career. This will allow you to learn what the AEC offers. Registering with the office and providing documentation will make it much quicker and easier to access services if you decide to utilize accommodations.
What if I can't attend the University of Oregon as a full-time student?
If a partial course load is necessary due to specific disability-related limitations, the Accessible Education Center can assist you. When appropriate, letters in support of full-time equivalency are available. Full-time equivalency is often necessary to receive services such as University Housing.
What if the elevator to my class breaks down?
Contact the University of Oregon Police Department at 541-346-2919. Explain that you cannot access your class due to a malfunction in the elevator and you need immediate assistance. Contact the AEC if you want us to intervene with your instructor or need other assistance.
Do I have to register my service animal with the university?
An individual with a disability who uses a service animal is not required to register the animal with university authorities prior to bringing the animal on campus. However, students are welcome to talk with the Accessible Education Center so that the presence of the animal on campus is documented. Only trained service animals, not emotional support animals, are allowed in general campus buildings.
