Requesting Accommodations

If you are an incoming or current student with a temporary or permanent disability and/or medical condition, you must complete the following Accommodation Request Process for any academic, testing, housing, dietary or parking accommodations at UD. This includes accommodations for service and support animals.

  1. Complete the Initial Accommodation Request form online.
  2. Schedule an appointment with the Office of Learning Resources by calling 937-229-2066.
  3. Provide documentation to support your accommodation request(s).*

*Documentation may be provided before, during, or after your appointment. 

Step 1: Initial Accommodation Request Form

Complete the Initial Accommodation Request form, with your contact information, details about your disability or medical condition, and any specific accommodation(s) you are requesting. You can upload supporting documentation into this form.

Step 2: Appointment(s)

Your appointment will be an interactive discussion where you work with one of the OLR's experienced disability staff to determine reasonable accommodations. You need to clearly describe your disability and/or medical condition and explain how the requested accommodation(s) will mitigate any barriers for you academically and/or non-academically.
