The Office of Accessibility Services (OAS) provides information and supportive services to students with disabilities. Once students have provided documentation of disabilities as outlined here, they may be eligible to receive appropriate educational accommodations.
The OAS will recommend reasonable and appropriate accommodations for any student on the university campus, or at the centers, who provides recent documentation of his or her disability as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Plan. A disability is defined by the ADA as any condition that substantially limits one or more major life activity.
The following are examples of the types of disabilities that might require services:
Attention Deficit Disorder
Services and auxiliary aids may include but are not limited to:
Extended time for exams
A quiet testing environment
Note taking software
Books in alternative format
Enlarged written materials
Books on Tape
Medical exit/ reentry
Not familiar with ADA or Section 504? See these websites for more information about compliance.
The OAS now uses the Accessibility Management System (AIM) to manage important requests and documents. To locate a specific form, request textbooks in alternate format, and more, choose the appropriate option for signing in below.
