Student Responsibility Checklist

Students are responsible for initiating the process of receiving accommodations each semester.  Specifically you must:

  1. Request your official letters from the ODA the first week of every semester and then deliver them to your instructors before your adjustments become active. It is encouraged that you give them to your professors during their office hours, and not in the class room. Your letters are usually ready within 3 business days, but during peak times it may take longer.
  2. Schedule your exams at least 5 business days in advance and 3 weeks for finals and midterms.
  3. Submit requests for alternative formats as soon as you register for classes.
  4. Report any problems with accommodation implementation to your ODA Coordinator IMMEDIATELY.
  5. If you have any questions or feel that your accommodations are not effective, let us know. We can't help if we don't know.
  6. Please help us keep our campus as accessible as possible. If you notice elevators out of service, poorly maintained curb cuts or any other access barriers, please contact us at (940) 565-4323.
