Accessible Education Center (AEC)
AEC facilitates the delivery and referral of services for students with disabilities. Students who register and create a confidential file with AEC can receive a wide spectrum of services based on individualized needs. AEC recommends students submit an application through MyAEC prior to registering for classes; however, students can register anytime during the semester with the AEC. Access to MyAEC can be found on AEC's home page. Accommodations and services include, but are not limited to the following:
Center for Accessible Technology (CAT)
Students registered with the AEC receive individual training in the use of assistive technology and have access to an open lab located in The Center for Accessible Technology (MLK 230).
An array of academically related services is provided on a case-by-case basis for students with verified disabilities to support curriculum requirements. Accommodations include but are not limited to: accessible technology, alternative media, notetaking, sign language interpreters and test accommodations.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHOH)
The DHOH Program provides Educational Sign Language Interpreters or Real-Time Educational Captioners for students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. Eligibility for this service is determined by the Deaf and HOH Coordinator and is based in part on the professional documentation provided by the student.
All students registering with the AEC will be considered for priority registration based on disability-related criteria determined on a case-by-case basis. It is recommended that students register with the AEC as soon as possible after applying to SJSU.
