DISABILITY SERVICES
 

AUK provides equal access to university programs for students with disabilities. Services include coordinating reasonable accommodations and other support services for eligible students. Students with disabilities must register with the Counseling Center to receive services.

Because of its limited resources for students with disabilities, AUK evaluates any requests for accommodation and access to university programs on a case-by-case basis. Students with disabilities who are requesting accommodations must declare this in the relevant section of their Admission Application packet and provide specific verifiable documentation, which will be evaluated by the Counseling Center.

Any current student seeking accommodations who has not disclosed a disability at the time of admission or who after matriculation has discovered an impairment impeding their academic progress and success is subject to the same disclosure and verification procedures as described for new students. AUK does not guarantee accommodations will be provided in all cases.

Scholarship students who find it difficult to meet the learning objectives of the course of study or the intended major due to an identified disability or due to the ineffectiveness of the accommodations received are advised to contact the Scholarship Department prior to the beginning of the following term to discuss options.

AUK reserves the right to make decisions regarding accommodations based upon the availability of resources and/or the change of condition or status of the student. AUK reserves the right to refuse a request for accommodation if it is determined the request fundamentally alters the essential elements of the course, program or activity, and/or exceeds the institution's assets or resources.

Students are responsible for meeting the learning objectives of the courses in which they are registered.

For more information about services and accommodations provided for students with disabilities, please contact  (+965) 2224-8399 ext. 3232, or email counseling@auk.edu.kw.
