The Office of Disability Services (ODS) is the central contact point for University students with disabilities. The goal of ODS is to ensure that University programs and services are accessible to qualified students with disabilities. ODS works with faculty and other members of the University community to provide individualized academic accommodations and support services while promoting student responsibility and self-advocacy. It is the studentís responsibility to make known a need for academic accommodations and services by providing appropriate documentation of the disability to ODS, formally requesting accommodations through meeting with an ODS case manager, and by presenting an official ODS accommodation letter to each of his/her professors.
For more information about services for students with disabilities, consult the Web site, www.ods.ua.edu, or call (205) 348-4285 (voice), or (205) 348-3081 (TTY). Written correspondence should be addressed to The Office of Disability Services, Box 870185, Tuscaloosa, AL 35487-0185. ODS is located in Martha Parham East, Room 133-B.
