Accessible Educational Services (AES) is the disability services office for IUPUI, IUPUC, IUFW students, and the IU School of Medicine students at nine statewide locations. This office determines if a student qualifies for accommodations, approves reasonable accommodations, and serves the campus community to ensure the implementation of those accommodations whenever possible. AES strives to ensure that students have equal opportunities to pursue a university education, while also maintaining a high level of academic integrity.

Request Accommodations Online!
Students can now request accommodations online with Accessible Educational Services! Simply point your browser to the Accommodation Request form to securely submit your information and upload your medical documentation. You will receive a response from AES inviting you to schedule an intake appointment.
This appointment will likely take no more than 30 minutes. It will take place in-person, via phone, or via Zoom. You will have an opportunity to discuss how your disability affects your academic experience. You and AES staff will also talk about which accommodation(s) would be most appropriate for you.
Be prepared to upload your medical documentation if you have it. If you have none or if your documentation will come from your medical provider, go ahead and submit your online accommodation request. We will discuss your documentation during the intake appointment.
Please contact our office if you have any questions.
Adaptive Educational Services is changing its name to Accessible Educational Services during the Summer 2023 term. This change allows all student disability services offices across the entire university to have the same name.

Important Test Scheduling Note
The AES Testing Lab is open from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday. This means:
- Do not schedule a test for the weekend or public holiday (Finals are an exception).
- Do not schedule a test before 9am (Finals are an exception).
- Do not schedule a test to end after 5pm (Finals are an exception).
If you need a special exception to these parameters, contact AES at email@example.com before submitting a testing request.
When you submit the form, you will receive an email with the information you provided on the form for your reference. This is not a confirmation email.
When you submit the form, your instructor will receive an email requesting to confirm the information you have provided, and requesting additional information that AES needs to complete the reservation.
When AES receives the information from your professor, we will finalize the testing time and date and other details, and send out a confirmation email with test details to you and your instructor. Make sure to check the date and time, as it may be different than your original request.
One day before the test, you will receive a reminder email with test details and important information for successful testing. AES will no longer use Outlook Calendar to remind students and instructors of the test.
Checkout the NEW AES Sensory Corner!
AES was awarded IUPUI’s Bridge to the Future Grant! Through the generous philanthropic support from the IUPUI Chancellor’s Circle, the AES Sensory Corner was created. The Sensory Corner is designed to provide a controlled sensory environment for neurodiverse students. The Sensory Corner has bins stocked with calming, pressure, and multi-sensory items for students to enjoy. Students may schedule a time to use the space. Walk-in appointments are welcome, upon room availability. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a 30 minute time block to use the space. Please see the flyer to view a picture of the space.

Accessible Educational Services (AES) is proud to be part of the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at IUPUI. We believe that this placement is a powerful statement on behalf of the campus which validates the idea that ability is an important facet of diversity. Diversity represents an approach to viewing the world, a commitment to inclusion, and a deep recognition and affirmation of who we all are and where we come from. At AES, we strive to create equitable access to an IUPUI education, to advocate for disability rights, and to raise awareness of disability-related issues. We regard this work as equity work by the campus.
