Disability Support Services

American College of Education complies with the law regarding disability discrimination and provides reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities unless doing so would cause “undue hardship” to the College. A “qualified individual with a disability” is an individual with a disability who, with or without reasonable accommodation, can perform the essential functions of the professional or academic position. To be considered for disability-related accommodations, individuals are responsible for identifying themselves and disclosing information about their disability through submitting a Disability Support Services (DSS) request form available on the MyACE Student Portal. Additionally, students can contact Disability Support Services at [email protected]
