Registering with Disability Services

According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, such as caring for one's self, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning and working. In order to receive assistance from ODS, the student must have a documented disability.

Students seeking to register with Disability Services must provide disability-related documentation from an appropriate licensed professional (details of documentation requirements are provided to each student by Disability Services and available on the Documentation Guidelines tab).

The submitted disability-related documentation should clearly identify the nature of the disability, as well the effects of the disability on a student's daily functioning. This documentation will allow the Disability Services' staff to determine appropriate and reasonable academic adjustment/auxiliary aids. After submitting the documentation (whether adequate or inadequate), Disability Services will contact the student to either schedule an appointment/interview or request additional information.

During the appointment/interview, reasonable academic adjustments and auxiliary aids will be discussed. The UHD Academic Adjustments Auxiliary Aids Policy will also be reviewed during the appointment/interview.
