ADS - Access and Disability Services
NEW FOR COVID-19:
The Access and Disability Services (ADS--formerly ODS) team strives to ensure that Dickinson programs, services and facilities are accessible to all Dickinson students on a non-discriminatory basis. ADS is committed to working with all eligible students with documented disabilities -- and with faculty and staff -- to provide reasonable accommodations in the academic and/or living environment.
Disclosures to ADS 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.

NEW TO DICKINSON OR SEEKING ACCOMMODATIONS FOR THE FIRST TIME?
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 Form before May 30th, and we will provide you with next steps. If you've like to receive guidance over the phone, please email us at email@example.com with your availability and we'll schedule a time to connect.
For students with academic accommodations, the Blue Forms are no more! Learn how you’ll use our new Access Plan through CLIQ to set up your accommodations online.
If you have been granted academic accommodations, but are not currently using them, it’s not too late to do so (provided that there’s adequate time to set up what’s necessary). Email us if you have any questions.
If you are seeking any additional accommodations, please 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.
OPEN HOURS at ADS:
Monday - Friday
11 a.m. - noon & 2 p.m. - 3 p.m (No appointment needed)
During Open Hours, our Access and Communications Coordinator, John Joyce, is available to meet privately with students to discuss disability and accommodation-related matters. No appointment is necessary, but it is helpful to email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance regarding the reason for the visit. Students will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis.
