Center for Disability Access & Resources

The Center for Disability Access and Resources provide services and academic accommodations for students of all backgrounds on campus with documented physical, psychological and learning disabilities. Not only do we advocate for our participants, but we encourage them to become their own advocates as well. CeDAR collaborates with faculty, staff, and community partners to provide accommodations for the unique needs of students both in and out of the classroom.

 

Accessing Services

We empower our participants by being a Disability Resource Center. This function provides supportive services to students with disabilities to enhance their skills for personal, academic, and professional growth.

Requesting Your Academic Accommodations For Students

CeDAR uses an online accessible information management portal called AIM which allows students to apply for services, request accommodations, set up testing appointments and more. In order to get started, simply click on the image and your login will be the same as your FAMU email and password.

AIM also allows professor to receive student accommodations directly via email once the student's accommodations have been approved by CeDAR, as well as showing up in the professor's home page. In addition, the system allows for instructor to specifically state the conditions for testing if the professor allows the student to use CeDAR as an alternative testing site and upload the exam directly to AIM for CeDAR staff to administer.
