Accommodation Policy and Information

Faculty Notice Regarding CEA Accommodations  

The University of Arkansas, Fayetteville (University), is committed to a policy of ensuring that no otherwise qualified individual with a disability is excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in University programs or activities due to their disability. The University is fully committed to complying with all requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA); the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008; and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) as amended, and to providing equal educational opportunities to otherwise qualified students with disabilities.

The Center for Educational Access (CEA) serves as the central campus resource for students with disabilities covered by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The CEA will determine what reasonable accommodations are consistent with each student’s disability and advise academic units regarding those accommodations. 

Faculty are responsible for providing reasonable accommodations to students for whom they have received an accommodation letter,  consistent with university (Faculty Handbook: Academic Responsibilities of Faculty, 2.2 Workload, Academic Policy Series 1520.10 & 1520.20) and Center for Educational Access (CEA) policies and procedures. 

The CEA is here to help! CEA staff are available to work with you to identify appropriate strategies to meet disability-related access needs and to ensure student accommodations are appropriately implemented.   Contact us directly via phone at (479) 575-3104 or email us at
