Accessible Education Services

Accessible Education Services is part of the Shepard Academic Resource Center. We assist University of Portland students with:

  • obtaining appropriate documentation of a disability
  • developing an accommodation plan to ensure necessary and appropriate classroom accommodations
  • facilitating non-classroom accommodations

In keeping with the central tenets of its mission – teaching and learning, faith and formation, and service and leadership – the University of Portland is committed to the full access and inclusion of all qualified students in its programs. It is the policy of the University to ensure that students with disabilities have equal opportunity for participation in the University’s academic programs and activities, in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act.

Please be aware that the AES office is currently working remotely. For more information about how to contact Accessible Education Services (AES), visit our Contact Us page.
