Students With Disabilities

Duke University TIP welcomes qualified students with disabilities. Under the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the university implements a consistent procedure to explore possible coverage and reasonable accommodations, such as auxiliary aids and services, academic adjustments, and classroom and housing accommodations.

Families who are interested in exploring the university’s procedure for possible accommodations under the ADA should contact the director of domestic educational programs at (919) 668-9100 to discuss. Students who have already been placed in a summer program course will automatically receive the necessary forms to complete to initiate the process for receiving reasonable accommodations. Duke TIP students are reminded that receiving services or accommodations in elementary or secondary schools does not necessarily qualify a student for the same services and/or accommodations at a postsecondary institution such as Duke University. For more information about disabilities policies at Duke, refer to the website of the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities.
