In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and other related U.S. laws, GIA will make efforts to accommodate each prospective candidate with special requirements or needs by making reasonable adjustments where appropriate. Each circumstance will be considered on an individual basis according to the means, limits and experience of GIA and the special request under consideration, at the time of such request. Each course requires students to be able to perform particular physical and cognitive tasks. Upon request, GIA is pleased to discuss these tasks with you to allow you to evaluate your potential for success and your decision to apply. Students requesting special accommodations are asked to do so in writing following admission to GIA and at least 30 days prior to the date accommodations will be needed. Documentation must be from a professional who is qualified in the testing and diagnosis of the disability. Please make an appointment to discuss your request with the dean of students before your course begins.
