Who we support

We support all AUP students providing services and accommodations when possible for health conditions, learning difficulties, disabilities and some temporary injuries.

 

What support is available?

While we unfortunately can’t always offer the same level of support typically available at universities in the USA, we do our best to provide a range of campus services and academic support.

For learning disabilities and academic accommodations, learn more on this page.

For physical disabilities, please reach out to the Dean of Student Development to:  

  • Discuss your experiences and expectations;
  • Review evidence of your disability;
  • Consider your study plans.

Information on this website is just a guide.

Support can take the form of:

  • Human support (tutoring, mentoring, advising, counseling);
  • IT equipment and study technology;
  • Examination and assessment accommodations;
  • Adjusted schedules for travel between classes;
  • Advice on accessibility in Paris;
  • Assistance in finding housing that meets your needs;
  • Support in navigating French health care. 

There may be other solutions available depending on your specific circumstances.

If you have a health condition, a learning difficulty or concerns about your well-being and academics, you can contact our Student Guidance Counselors who will be very happy to meet with you in a comfortable, confidential space (counseling@aup.edu).
