Claremont Graduate University utilizes Accessible Information Management (AIM), a case-management and communications platform that offers data reports, file storage, and shared faculty resources with the Claremont Colleges and Student Disability Resource Center.

New AIM Students
If you are seeking accommodations as a student with a disability for the first time or suspect that you have a disability, please submit an online application via the following link:
Please note that in order to log in to AIM, your username will be last name, first initial, and last four digits of your student ID number (ie. smithj1234). Your password will be the same password that you use to log into your email and CGU portal. You may upload any documentation from your doctor or therapist directly into the application. Please review the information in the dropdown menu below about documentation. After submitting your application, please schedule a one-hour appointment with CGU’s Disability Services Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The signature, printed name, title, professional credentials, and contact information of the evaluator;
- The date of the most recent evaluation;
- A clearly stated diagnosis or condition;
- A description of the diagnostic methodology used;
- A description of the student’s current functional limitations in an academic environment;
- A description of the expected progression or stability of the disability.
- Depending upon the impact and duration of a particular condition, documentation should be current and sufficient enough in order to justify the need for the requested accommodations. Each case is evaluated on an individual basis.
- CGU does not pay for nor provide testing and/or diagnostic services.
- Documentation should identify a diagnosis, address the student’s ability to function in an academic environment, and include recommendations for accommodations. Recommendations will be considered, but CGU is not obligated to provide recommended accommodations when not sufficiently justified to accommodate the identified disability; or that fundamentally alter or reduce the academic standards of the University, courses, or program requirements. Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis in collaboration with the student and in consideration of essential program requirements.
- A secondary school plan such as an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan does not alone constitute documentation of disability but may be included in a student’s overall assessment.
- Statements written on a physician’s prescription pad, or those written by the student and then signed by a health care provider, are not deemed to be sufficient as documentation of disability.
If you need to request accommodations for non-coursework events such as qualifying exams, dissertation defenses, or language exams, please schedule an appointment with CGU’s Disability Services Coordinator at email@example.com.
