Office of Academic Support and Disability Services


The Office of Academic Support and Disability Services (O.A.S.D.S.) was established in 2003 to help maximize the academic success and persistence to graduation of all students. The office provides focused services for students with disabilities and students typically underrepresented in higher education.

Services for Students with Disabilities

The Juilliard School is dedicated to helping students with permanent or temporary disabilities to meet the academic and performance challenges of a conservatory education. The Office of Academic Support and Disability Services works in partnership with students, faculty and administrators to create inclusive and sustainable learning environments. The office facilitates access, discourse, and involvement through innovative services, programs, and collaboration.

Contact Information

O.A.S.D.S. is the central point of contact for information on physical and programmatic access, specific accommodations, faculty and staff concerns, and identification of available services. Our office will coordinate the provision of appropriate accommodations and/or academic adjustments on an individual basis for students with disabilities who identify themselves to O.A.S.D.S., provide adequate documentation of their disability and need for accommodation, request services and complete required forms as needed. In addition, training, consultation, and information regarding disability issues is provided.
