ODS - The Office of Disability Services
The Office of Disability Services (ODS) seeks to ensure that all programs, services and facilities are accessible to Dickinson students on a non-discriminatory basis. ODS is committed to working with all eligible students with documented disabilities and with faculty to provide reasonable accommodations in the academic and/or living environment.
Questions? Email us!
Disclosures to ODS are completely confidential and will never appear on a student's college record. Here are the Accommodation Request Steps. For more information about the complete disclosure and academic accommodations process, see Disclosing and Documenting a Disability to Request Academic Accommodations.
WELCOME EXCEPTIONAL NEW STUDENTS!
We're delighted you've chosen to be a part of the Dickinson Family. If you are in need of any type of accommodation(s) at Dickinson--whether due to a learning or physical disability, a medical or mental health condition, or a temporary impairment, please complete our Disclosure and Request for Accommodations, and will provide you with next steps. If you have any questions whatsoever, please email us at email@example.com, or call us at (717) 245-1734. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
FOR CURRENT STUDENTS WITH ACCOMMODATIONS:
Students who are eligible for accommodations and use them typically perform better academically than those who don't. If you have been granted accommodations, but are not currently using them, it's not too late to do so! You just need to provide us with one week's advanced notice before any test proctoring needed. Come to ODS to get your letters or to bring back your forms anytime M-F 8:30 - 4:00.
For those of you with academic accommodations who haven't yet picked up your letters or returned all of your blue forms, we strongly encourage you to do so TODAY for any classes in which you may need accommodations. Remember that we need one week's advance notice before any proctoring needed. If there's any chance of need, act now. Better safe than sorry!
If you are seeking additional accommodations, follow our online instructions to your "Disability Disclosure and Accommodation Request" form, add any additional information or requests, and email us to let us know that you have.
