The Office of Disability Services (ODS) is the central contact point for UA students with academic disabilities. ODS works with faculty and other members of the University community to provide individualized academic accommodations while promoting student responsibility and self-advocacy. It is the student’s responsibility to make known a need for academic accommodations and services by
(1) completing an application and providing appropriate documentation of the disability to ODS,
(2) formally requesting accommodations during an intake interview with an ODS Accommodations Specialist,
(3) using the ODS Online Portal to provide each instructor the Faculty Notification Letter, and
(4) meeting with each instructor to discuss the implementation of accommodations.
Students can apply for academic accommodations and submit disability documentation by logging into the ODS Online Portal with their MyBama username and password.
For more information about services for students with disabilities, including documentation requirements, visit ods.ua.edu or call 205-348-4285 (voice), or 205-348-3081 (TTY). Office hours for ODS are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
