WelcomeWelcome to the Office of Student AccessAbility website.
The University of Texas at Dallas is committed to equal access to educational, recreational and social endeavors for students with disabilities. The primary function of the Office of Student AccessAbility (OSA) is to provide:
- Academic accommodations for eligible students with a documented physical, mental or sensory disability.
- Facilitation of non-academic and environmental accommodations and services.
- Resources and referral information, and advocacy support as necessary and appropriate.
Academic accommodations for each student are determined by OSA on an individual basis, with input from qualified professionals. Accommodations are intended to level the playing field for students with disabilities, while maintaining the academic integrity and standards set by the University.
Best wishes for a successful academic career at UT Dallas. We look forward to working with you!
Self-disclosure of a disability is necessary for students seeking academic or physical accommodations from OSA. Although disclosure of a disability is necessary if you are to receive accommodations, the precise details of your disability may remain confidential from your professors if you prefer.
Disability documentation provided by the student is kept in locked cabinets in the OSA office. These documents are not part of a student’s permanent education record.
