This institution complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and state and local requirements regarding students with disabilities. Accommodations will be provided to qualified students with disabilities (including, but not limited to, mental health disabilities, physical/learning disabilities or temporary disabilities) in compliance with federal and state regulations.

The University does not discriminate on the basis of disability in violation of applicable law and regulation.  The University does not discriminate in admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, its programs or activities.  The University’s Disability Officer coordinates compliance with the Section 504 regulation and may be contacted at:

Julie Komisarcik
Director and Disability Officer

Charles Town, WV 25414

A request for accommodation will be considered if the request:

  • is based on documentation that meets APUS' published guidelines;
  • does not compromise essential requirements of a course or program; and
  • does not impose a financial or administrative burden upon APUS beyond that which is deemed reasonable.

A qualified student can, with or without accommodations, perform the essential functions of program or course requirements. The essential requirements of an academic course or program need not be modified to accommodate an individual with a disability.

Final responsibility for selection of the most appropriate accommodation rests with the Disability Services Accommodations Office (DSA) and is determined on an individual case-by-case basis, based on the nature of the student's disability. Students are encouraged to e-mail to discuss potential academic accommodations and begin the review process.

It is the student's responsibility to follow the DSA process as published in the Student Handbook.
