Students Considering Registering with AccessibleNU

Importance of Registering with AccessibleNU

The only way to receive academic accommodations at Northwestern is to register with AccessibleNU.

Postsecondary education differs from earlier levels of education with regard to its support of students with disabilities and other conditions requiring accommodation. This is partly because different laws govern reasonable accommodation at the postsecondary and K-12 levels. At post secondary institutions, it is the students' responsibility to

  • inform the appropriate department (AccessibleNU at Northwestern University), of any disability or other condition requiring accommodation
  • provide any necessary documentation regarding the disability or condition
  • request accommodations and services if needed
A student who has a disability or other condition but has not registered with AccessibleNU is not entitled to services or accommodations.

To register with ANU, follow our three-step registration process.
