Student Accessibility Support

Student Accessibility Support

We are pleased to announce our new name: Student Accessibility Support. We are located in the Office of Academic Services, Usdan 130.

Brandeis is committed to providing an environment that is equitable and accessible to all qualified students. Since admission to the university is based on the academic qualifications of the applicant, admissions procedures remain the same for all applicants, regardless of disability. The university provides reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities. Once accepted, a student must provide us with documentation of a learning, psychological or physical disability to receive appropriate services. Please observe a reasonable time frame for requesting accommodations.

Brandeis degree candidates who require accommodations: email access@brandeis.edu.

Students with disabilities may meet with our staff should they need some assistance or advocacy.  To book an appointment call 781.736.3470, or email access@brandeis.edu.  Appointment times are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays throughout both summer sessions. Visiting students need to schedule a half-hour meeting with our office to register, obtain accommodation approval, and request accommodation letters to present to faculty.   

Summer School students visiting from other universities should email the following items to access@brandeis.edu:

  • neuropsychological evaluation documenting their learning disability or ADHD, and/or their medical report documenting their sensory limitation or physical or psychological disability 
  • academic accommodation letter with letterhead from their home institution
  • a note indicating the accommodations they request for Brandeis Summer School

Brandeis students already registered with Student Accessibility Support may contact us as usual at the start of a semester.

Summer School Faculty are invited to consult with us as well.

Summer 2021

We're busy planning Summer 2021! Take a look at our 2020 summer classes to get an idea of the classes we typically offer (courses change each summer). Let us know if there are classes you'd like to see offered!

Summer 2020 was online

Due to COVID-19, all Brandeis Summer School classes were online for Summer 2020. There were two models of instruction 5-week synchronous "remote learning" and 10-week asynchronous online courses. We are not certain if we will be having classes on-campus this summer, but will update students as soon as we know.
