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.
Disclosures to ODS are completely confidential and will never appear on a student's college record. Notification of accommodations is placed in the hands of students. Students are encouraged to make inquiries about accommodations, and if granted, can choose whether or not to use them.
ODS is located in 106 Dana Hall, which is on the corner of College St. (across from the Quarry) and Louther St. (across from Rector). This is also the Office of Learning Skills, which provides free workshops, semester calendars, weekly planners, reviews of apps, and many other strategic learning and study skills materials.
Welcome Newly Disclosing Exceptional Students!
Students who are eligible for accommodations and use them typically perform better academically than those who don't. Students wishing to find out more about potentially receiving accommodations at Dickinson are encouraged to send an email to Disability Services and we will be happy to provide you with information about the disclosure and accommodation request process.
For more information about the complete academic accommodations process, see Disclosing and Documenting a Disability to Request Academic Accommodations.
FOR CURRENT STUDENTS WITH ACCOMMODATIONS:
If you have been granted academic accommodations, but are not currently using them, it’s not too late to do so! You just need to ensure that you allow one week’s notice for any test proctoring needed. Come to ODS to get your letters and forms today!
If you are seeking additional accommodations, follow our online instructions to your "Disability Disclosure and Accommodation Request" form, also accessible using the FORMS icon on your Gateway portal.
We're looking forward to seeing you!
