Academic Accommodations

CalArts has a commitment to provide equal educational opportunities to students who identify with having a disability or are otherwise documented. 

We will still hold true to this commitment and in our compliance as we navigate telephonic, online and/or web-based instruction with the state and federal laws including The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 defines an individual with a disability as someone who (1) has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the individual's major life activities; (2) has a record of such an impairment; or (3) is regarded as having such an impairment.

While teaching will be different through this format, learning for students will be just as different if not more difficult. Please be patient with them as they adjust and with us as we adjust their reasonable academic accommodations through our office. For students who are in need and have not registered for accommodations, please refer them to our CalArts Disability Services website or
