Step 3: Read About the Accessibility Resources Center

Not all students will need to complete this step. However, ALL students should review this information carefully to determine if you need to request housing modifications or other reasonable accommodations.

The Accessibility Resources Center (ARC) provides comprehensive services and support that serve to promote educational equity and ensure that students are able to participate in the opportunities available at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts and University of New Haven.

All students should read the information below and determine if ARC provides resources that you require. If you are not a student with a chronic medical condition, disability or military combat related disorder, you may be able to skip this step.

Modifications to Housing

If you are a student who will need modifications to housing (such as an air conditioner, single room, double room, accessible bathroom, etc.) due to a chronic health related disorder or other disability, you must apply for the modification. These modifications are not automatic.

DEADLINE: To ensure optimal access opportunity, submit requests no later than June 15. Don’t wait - start now! Late requests may result in substitution, delay, or denial of the request.


Former IEP or 504 Plan Requests

While IEP and 504 Plans do not carry over into the college environment, students who formerly held either an IEP or 504 Plan should register with the Accessibility Resources Center to access reasonable accommodations and services to ensure your opportunity for academic success. Students should schedule a summer intake appointment between June 1 and July 15 on the West Haven Campus.
