Individualized Sessions

Academic Coaching will move to a completely online program via Zoom. We are, in essence, the exact same program that we have been. Students will request support and attend meetings in the same manner -- with video and audio conferencing technology being utilized to provide all students with support. We are flexible to student needs upon request.

All accommodations that a student received in in-person classes will carry over to the remote instruction format. Some students may require additional accommodations for the remote instruction format that they did not require for in-person course delivery. Please reach out to Disability Resources at access@andrew.cmu.edu if you have questions or concerns about additional accommodations that may be relevant given the change in delivery.

The testing center will not be operational; however, we are happy to talk to students and faculty about any and all unique needs and concerns.

Disability Resources stands ready to connect via email, telephone, and Zoom with faculty, staff, and students regarding accommodations and exam accessibility questions and concerns while transitioning to online instruction. We have also transitioned all student appointments to Zoom or phone appointments until further notice.
