The Office of Disability Services (ODS) operates within The Office for Academic Affairs.  ODS serves as the central point of contact for UA students with academic disabilities. ODS works with faculty and other members of the University community to provide individualized academic accommodations and support services while promoting student responsibility and self-advocacy. It is the student’s responsibility to self-identify their need for academic accommodations and services by:

(1) providing appropriate documentation of the disability to ODS,

(2) formally requesting accommodations by meeting with an ODS Accommodations Specialist, and

(3) meeting with each instructor to present a formal ODS accommodation notice and to discuss the implementation of accommodations.

Disability documentation can be submitted via any of the following:
