It is the policy of Oregon State University to comply with Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as amended by the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, and other applicable federal and state regulations that prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability.
Under these laws, students with a documented disability have a right to receive reasonable accommodations.
Additionally, students have the following responsibilities:
Disclosing your disability during the application process is not required. Applying for academic accommodations is a separate and confidential process through the DAS office.
In order to ensure you have accommodations in place when you begin classes, please allow 2-4 weeks for the DAS registration and documentation review process from the time you submit your documentation.
**Please Note: Applications received between September and February for the next academic year will be reviewed in February (example: student applying for Fall term 2020 submits an application in October 2019. This application will be reviewed in February 2020.)**
Please complete the following steps.
We require advance notice in order to coordinate your accommodations. Please see Chapter 4 for Timeline for Service Requests for applicable deadlines.
COMPLETE A DAS ORIENTATION:
After your documentation has been reviewed, you will receive an eligibility/denial email which will include information about the DAS orientation process.
During this orientation, you will learn how to request accommodations each term using DAS Online Services, get connected with a DAS adviser, learn about DAS policies and procedures, and have an opportunity to have your questions answered.
During your DAS orientation, you will request your accommodations for the upcoming or current term. In subsequent terms, you will register for courses through OSU and then request your accommodations for the term through DAS Online Services. It is advised that you make your requests for your accommodations soon after you register for your classes each term (24-48 hours) and in accordance with the DAS Timeline for Service Requests.
DAS receives documentation throughout the year. If you submit a request for academic accommodations and documentation, of your disability after the start of a term, and you wish to receive accommodations for that term, please be advised that you will need to be found eligible for accommodations and will need to complete Part 1 & 2 of the DAS orientation. Additionally, your accommodations may take time to coordinate. DAS makes a good faith effort to accommodate students as quickly as possible, but requests are generally provided according to our Timeline for Service Requests.
For students registering with DAS for the first time, applications with documentation received after Week 8 of the term will be considered for the following term.
