Student Accessibility Services - Mission Statement

The mission of the Student Accessibility Services (SAS) is to ensure equal opportunity and access to all members of the New York Film Academy community to participate, contribute and benefit from campus wide programs, activities and services.

Vision

The aim of the SAS is to ensure compliance with the mandates set forth in Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (and the ADA as amended in 2008), as well New York Film Academy’s policy of inclusion and non-discrimination. We achieve this by collaborating with students and the community to ensure an individualized approach in determining and facilitating accommodations. The non-traditional nature of our programs sometimes require unique accommodations that are tailored to the needs of each student, while still maintaining integrity of our curricula and programs.

What we do

Students with documented disabilities are provided with reasonable accommodations through a process of meetings and reviewing of documentation. The SAS staff determine the appropriate accommodations in conjunction with the student and ensure that those accommodations are in place for the student to access New York Film Academy’s curricula and services.

Community education and involvement is also a core component of the department’s engagement with the campus community. Best practices and processes on how to support students with disabilities are shared through seminars and workshops in the hopes of increasing engagement and fostering a welcoming environment within the campus.
