Accessibility Services

Mission and Vision

NYFA NY Accessibility Services provides academic services and accommodations for students with disabilities.  Our mission is to ensure equal opportunity and access to all members of the New York Film Academy community and mitigate barriers to learning, participating, contributing and benefitting from our academic programs, activities and services. Our services and operation are in compliance with Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act and the American Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, amended as of 2008, and in alliance with our policies on inclusivity and non-discrimination.

How We Accommodate Students with Disabilities

The ADA defines a disability as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Students with disabilities are responsible for initiating the accommodations request process by self- disclosing their disabilities directly to the Dean of Students. Please know that all requests and materials submitted are handled in the strictest confidence!

The process of requesting and receiving accommodations is interactive and individualized, involving review of required/submitted documentation and collaborative discussions regarding the students’ needs and the specific academic expectations and activities of our programs. The non-traditional nature of our programs require, at times, unique accommodations tailored to address the varying needs of our students while also maintaining they integrity of our curricula and learning objectives.
