Important Information About ODA Finals and the UNT Weather Closures
The ODA is open and ready to proctor your finals as indicated in the newly revised final exam schedule, but we wanted to pass along some notes to help this process become as stress free as can be. (if that’s even possible with finals!)
Report Problems Request a Ride Between Buildings
There are still some ramps, streets and parking areas that have ice on them, use caution if you have any problem areas to report email Charlie.Brien@unt.edu. If your disability makes it next to impossible to get between buildings in these conditions call 940-565-2700 and ask to be picked up in a golf cart, or receive personal assistance.
THE FOLLOWING ONLY APPLIES TO STUDENTS WHO TEST IN OUR TESTING CENTER AND TURNED IN A TEST REQUEST FORM BY THE DEADLINE PLEASE DISREGARD IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN EXAM ALREADY SCHEDULED WITH THE ODA
Please plan on taking exams with the ODA as indicated on the new UNT final exam schedule here: http://registrar.unt.edu/exams/final-exam-schedule, your scheduled exams have automatically been moved to the new times and space is reserved for you in the ODA if you scheduled the exam with us.
Unfortunately, due to the high volume of testing it may not be possible for us to allow you to test at the ODA if you aren’t able to take the exam in accordance with the new UNT schedule. Ask your professor if he or she can provide the testing accommodations or any other modifications first if you have any problems before contacting the ODA to ask for a different test time, please.
If you aren’t able to make your test time with the ODA, or you no longer need to test with us if your professor is allowing other arrangements, please email Testing.ODA@unt.edu
Keep in mind the campus bus service will stop at midnight tonight, tomorrow and Friday (Dec 11-13), if you have one of the late night finals be sure and arrange transportation if you think your test could potentially go past midnight.

What We Do
The Office of Disability Accommodation (ODA) at the University of North Texas exists to prevent discrimination on the basis of disability and to help students reach a higher level of independence.
Our caring and professional staff helps students learn more about their disabilities, develop techniques to accommodate individual learning styles, learn how to talk to faculty and staff about accommodation needs and develop strategies to achieve goals.
