Academic Accessibility

We Provide Academic Accessibility 

Academic accommodations granted to students at any NYU site, including NYU Abu Dhabi, are given through NYU Moses Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) in New York. As such, students who need reasonable accommodations are required to follow the registration and application process with Moses Center.

For students studying at NYUAD, these accommodations are managed on site in Abu Dhabi through the NYUAD Dean of Students Office.

Reasonable Academic Accommodation

Examples of the types of reasonable academic accommodations that may be provided at NYUAD include, but are not limited to:

  • testing accommodations
  • note-takers
  • materials in alternate format

It is important to note that reasonable academic accommodations do not negate requirements for successful completion of a program, course, or service or adherence to acceptable standards of behavior. Furthermore, please also note that some accommodations are not appropriate in all courses and early communication from students with accommodations to their professors is highly encouraged.

How to Apply

All students who are requesting reasonable academic accommodations are required to register with NYU Moses Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD). If available, any third-party documentation which supports your request for accommodations should also be uploaded at the time of your registration.
