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. Students are encouraged to make inquiries about accommodations and, if granted, can choose the classes in which 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. If you’re ready to request accommodations now, we’re ready for you! Please follow these Accommodation Request Steps. Those 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:
For those of you with academic accommodations, it’s that time again, when you’ll find all kinds of enticements (cookies, giveaways, cash prizes…) if you come to Dana Hall to get your letters and forms on the first day of classes and GET IT DONE ON DAY 1! (You know you’ll be glad you did.) We’ll be here from 8:30am – 4:30pm. We're looking forward to seeing you!
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.
