Transition to Remote Learning

Emory University welcomes students and employees with disabilities and is committed to providing equal access to all community members.  Policies and procedures are in place to provide individuals with disabilities as much independence as possible to promote self-advocacy.  The Department of Accessibility Services (DAS) works closely with individuals who self-identify in order to ensure equal access for all Emory programs, activities and services.  We encourage you to learn more about our services on our website, where you will find information about accommodations we provide, as well as procedures for requesting accommodations and services. 

The Department of Accessibility Services is currently offering virtual services, and will remain open Monday-Friday, 8 am – 5 pm. Until further notice, DAS will not be accepting documentation via fax or mail.  If you have any problems submitting your materials for registration on Accommodate, please email the contacts below.
