UCLA Center for Accessible Education

The CAE is operating on a hybrid schedule, however, we have CAE staff on-campus everyday. If you plan to visit the CAE in-person, please be aware of the most recent campus updates for COVID-19 protocols: https://covid-19.ucla.edu/.

CAE's Mission

The mission of the Center for Accessible Education (CAE) is to create an accessible, inclusive, and supportive learning environment. Through a collaborative effort with faculty, staff, and students, the CAE facilitates academic accommodations, disability advocacy, and serves as an educational resource for the campus community.

Our Approach to Supporting You

The Center for Accessible Education serves thousands of our undergraduate, graduate, and professional students enrolled at UCLA. Students seeking reasonable accommodations or support services from The Center for Accessible Education are required to register with the office as early as possible so that you can work closely with a Disability Specialist and tap into the knowledge and support available to navigate your UCLA experience. The Center for Accessible Education will work closely with you to identify reasonable accommodations for your program.

Our Purpose

Students with disabilities that arrive at UCLA do so with the skills, inner resources, and ambition needed to be a great success. However, for some students with disabilities, negotiating university life and academic environments can be more challenging without the benefit of support. The Center for Accessible Education serves as a central resource on disability-related information for students, procedures, and services for the University student community. The Center for Accessible Education provides expertise in determining and implementing appropriate and reasonable accommodations for academics and housing. UCLA students with disabilities are fundamental to the diverse pillars of the University, and we work to support you in accessing the educational experience at UCLA.
