Office of Disability Accommodations

The Office of Disability Accommodation (ODA) is the central referral agency and resource clearinghouse for students who qualify for disability accommodations as defined by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and, since 1990, the Americans with Disability Act (ADA).

The mission of ODA is to provide reasonable accommodations to students and to apply appropriate adjustments to the classroom and associated learning environments . In order to facilitate this process, ODA maintains all student disability-related medical and psychological documentation and the corresponding accommodation request records. Once students are accepted into the University, they are encouraged to contact ODA so that we may assess ways in which we can facilitate access to educational opportunities for the consummate college experience.

To Apply for Services

Please keep in mind that the process below must be completed before the ODA can provide any services or make any recommendations to faculty on your behalf. On average, the process takes at least two weeks to complete, but if your documentation does not meet all the requirements listed on the documentation page the process will be delayed.

  1. Optional

    Contact the ODA to schedule an "Information Meeting" with an ODA Counselor. In this meeting, we will listen to your concerns and help you decide on pursuing formal accommodations with our office. The counselor will explain what sort of documentation will be required for your disability and refer you to resources where you can obtain such documentation. Often, we are able to refer students to resources on campus that can provide immediate assistance for a wide range of issues, including financial, personal, medical and academic. However, official accommodations do not begin until the remaining steps of this process are complete. As noted, step one is optional. If you already have documentation, you may start with the next step.

  2. Required

    If you decide to pursue formal accommodations, submit your documentation to the ODA in person, by mail or by fax (940) 369-7969 with the ODA application for services. Documentation is not accepted by email. Please make sure you include your name, address and phone number on the documentation or attach the ODA Information Form. Documentation is reviewed weekly.

  3. Required

    After your documentation is reviewed, you will receive a phone call from the ODA support staff. They will ask you to come to our office for the next ODA group orientation session. The ODA group orientation is strongly encouraged because the group format typically allows you to complete the ODA registration process earlier, receive the letters of accommodation your professors require faster, and will enable you to interact with other students who may be receiving similar accommodations to share strategies. However, if you are not comfortable with the ODA group orientation you may request an individual orientation appointment. NOTE: The support staff will not be able to discuss the results of the documentation review. You will also receive written notification of the results of the documentation review. This notification will state whether or not your documentation was sufficient or if more information is required.

  4. Required

    You must attend the ODA group orientation session or an individual ODA orientation. If you are more than 15 minutes late, you may be asked to reschedule. If more information is required, you will you will be informed how to go about acquiring the additional information but you will not be eligible for ODA orientation. You must resubmit your documentation with this updated information in order to proceed.

If your documentation was determined to be sufficient for the ODA to provide accommodations, you will receive a letter of accommodation after attending the ODA group or individual orientation. You must then take this letter to your instructors and discuss the accommodations before they can be implemented. It is your responsibility to take the letters to your professors. Your accommodations begin once you have discussed them with your instructors. They are not retroactive and cannot be applied to any previous tests, quizzes, assignments, absences or coursework.

Remember, you must complete the Accommodation Request Form (pdf), or submit the request online to receive your accommodation letters each semester.
