Welcome to Arkansas State University!


Important Things to Remember

  • AAS sends accommodation letters to faculty members for students with disabilities who register with us and present sufficient documentation of their disability. This includes online programs.

  • Make sure articles and other text used outside of the textbook are in a readable format and accessible for screen readers.

  • Victoria Shann with AAS will take care of E-Text accommodations that you may see on an accommodations letter.

  • Students that receive testing accommodations are eligible to take their exams in proctored spaces within the AAS office.

  • All course material provided online must be accessible.

  • Some students will have accommodations that allow them to use certain technology in the classroom (recorders, note-taking software, etc.).

  • If you are going to use a podcast as course material, you must have the following: 
    • Transcripts for audio podcasts for hearing-impaired audiences.
    • Appropriately synchronized captions in video podcasts for hearing-impaired audiences.
    • Audio descriptions of visual content that conveys important information in video podcasts for visually impaired audiences.



        We strongly encourage all faculty to include the following statement in your syllabus:

          • Any student in this course who has a disability that may prevent him/her from fully participating in this course should register with AAS (www.astate.edu/a/disability) as soon as possible, so we can make the necessary accommodations to facilitate your educational opportunity.

          Students with disabilities do not always disclose they have a disability to their instructor(s) for various reasons. Including this statement will indicate your willingness to accommodate students with disabilities.
