Disabilities Services and Academic Accommodations
Curtis welcomes students with disabilities and provides reasonable accommodations to those who self-identify in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Academic accommodations, auxiliary services, and technology are made available to students who meet established documentation guidelines.
As the sole criterion for admission to the Curtis Institute of Music is artistic promise, no student shall be denied admission or be subjected to discrimination in admission on the basis of disability. Curtis will then ensure equal access to education, educational materials, and participation in Institution activities through reasonable accommodation and/or modification.
- Reasonable accommodations include: extra time to take a test, a quiet location for an exam, an alternate exam format
- Auxiliary aids include: specialized computer equipment, electronic readers, closed captions
- Modifications include: rescheduling classes to different locations, substituting courses
Accommodations are not required when they would fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program, or activity.
