Johns Hopkins University Student Disability Services are aligned with the values of the School of Nursing. We collaborate to create an inclusive community for students with disabilities by proactively removing barriers, raising awareness of equitable practices, and fostering an appreciation of disability as an area of diversity while utilizing a wide range of approaches from universal design to individualized accommodations.
The Director of Student Affairs is the Student Disability Services (SDS) coordinator for the School of Nursing. Applicants for admission may keep any disability or requirement for accommodations confidential.
Upon admission and prior to enrollment, students with a disability should provide a comprehensive evaluation of a specific disability from an appropriate qualified diagnostician that identifies the type of disability, describes the current level of functioning in an academic setting, and lists recommended accommodations, including any accommodations received from previous educational institutions.
Student Disability Services (SDS) will be moving to a new university-wide database called Accommodation Information Management (AIM) starting with the Fall 2022 semester.
All Summer 2022 course accommodation requests should be made using the current database, Accommodate:
- New to working with SDS students that are taking Summer 2022 courses can submit an initial request for accommodations through the SDS online form in Accommodate (Summer 2022 only).
- Returning students who already have approved accommodations, should continue to request letters for Summer 2022 courses through Accommodate.
Starting on 6/21/22, all New requests for Fall 2022 accommodations will be made using AIM:
- New to working with SDS students will submit an initial request for accommodations through the AIM online application (Fall 2022 and beyond).
- Returning students already working with SDS will be notified when the New AIM Student Portal opens for Fall 2022 requests; in the interim any changes or questions should be directed to SON-SDS@jhu.edu.
