Will GFA courses be offering any accommodations for people with learning disabilities? Especially during proctored exams?

edX is committed to achieving full accessibility (WCAG 2.0 compliant or better) in the platform. We are continuously making accessibility improvements as we build out new capabilities and programs in order to meet this stringent standard. In terms of our proctoring solution, we are working with the software vendor and our university partners to ensure anyone taking courses for credit eligibility has an equitable experience. Accessibility is a key requirement for Arizona State University, as well. All Global Freshman Academy courses delivered through the edX platform will be ADA compliant and transcripts for hearing impaired students will be available for each video.

If you require additional time or any specific accommodations or exemptions to the exam policies in order to complete a proctored exam, contact edX Support at accessibility@edx.org.
