The Students with Accommodation Services (SAS) was developed to provide students who needed accommodations due to a documented disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (2018). Students who experience a short-term but significant health issue can also make a Leniency Request via SAS.
Students with a disability should request accommodations through the Student Services Departments. All requests must be made within two weeks of the start of the semester. Once a qualified individual with a disability has requested services, the designated staff of Student Services will meet with the student to review the documentation and determine appropriate and reasonable accommodations. Fairfax University of America will not provide accommodations to students until the approved documentation of a disability has been provided.

Students are also responsible for supplying written documentation of the disabling condition.

The Leniency Process is used when a student experiences a short-term but significant health issue and wants an instructor to allow extra time on assignment deadlines.
In some cases, the staff member of the Student Affairs Department can request Leniency for a student on a case-by-case basis.
