Commitment to Students with Disabilities

Central European University (CEU) is committed to creating accessible and inclusive educational environments by identifying and removing barriers and by providing reasonable accommodations to students to ensure their full participation in the university’s programs, courses, and activities. This whole-institution commitment is guided by the principles of universal design and aims to reduce the need for individual accommodations.

We recognize the importance of information sharing. We also recognize that you may not know who to turn to for guidance. The Disability Services Officer provides assistance and can answer your questions. Please do not hesitate to reach out when in doubt if you can request accommodations for the barriers you are experiencing. The Disability Services Officer can be reached by email at nyikesn@ceu.edu.

Confidentiality Information

The CEU Disability Services Officer and the Dean of Students Office keep your information confidential. With your permission, your information may be shared with CEU faculty and staff members so that they can provide disability-related accommodations on all campus locations. Please kindly note:
  • Faculty members and coordinators may be informed about the accommodations you are entitled to receive, including exam modifications and adjustments. 
  • Registration with the Disability Services Office is not noted on your transcript.
  • You do not have to disclose the nature of a disability or information about your health to faculty members or other staff members at the university. 
  • If a student voluntarily discloses a disability but does not want to register with the Disability Services Office, faculty members can provide the same support as they would for any student experiencing academic challenges.
