Requesting Accommodations

  • Please submit a DAS registration form and disability documentation. See our Getting Started with DAS page for more information.
  • Once documentation has been received and accepted, please contact the DAS office to schedule an orientation. If you do not live in or near Corvallis, the orientation may be conducted by telephone. You will need to have access to a computer with an internet connection during the orientation.
  • Once the orientation has been completed, you will have access to DAS Online Services so that you can make requests for accommodations online each term.
  • Login to DAS Online Services to make your accommodation requests.

Please review the following specific steps necessary in obtaining accommodations for Ecampus students.

Alternative Testing

When students request Alternative Testing accommodations each term, DAS notifies faculty and Ecampus Testing of the accommodations. The student should contact the faculty member if they encounter an issue with receiving their accommodation.

Students are responsible for reviewing the course syllabus to determine if a proctor is needed for their exams and completing the Exams and Proctoring Form to designate a proctor if necessary.

Registered DAS students may choose to use the DAS Testing Center on the Corvallis campus as a proctor. If a proctor other than the DAS Testing Center in Corvallis will be used, the student is responsible for determining if the proctor they select is able to provide their accommodations. Here are steps to finding a proctor and a list of Oregon Testing Centers.

If DAS is selected as the Ecampus proctor, Ecampus Testing will send the proctoring information to DAS so staff can complete a testing agreement. The student can then schedule their exams through DAS Online Services. Students must follow DAS timelines for submitting exam requests in a timely manner.

Please review Chapter 5: Alternative Testing in the DAS Student Handbook for more detailed information on testing policies and procedures.

Questions can be directed to Alternative Testing Services at 541-737-8970 or Testing.Services@oregonstate.edu.

Notetaking Services

Typically, a notetaker is not provided due to the nature of online classes.

Alternative Formats

Please contact the DAS Alternative Formats Production Manager at Alt.Format@oregonstate.edu.

Captioned Media

Videos/DVDs/internet clips used in Ecampus courses that have an audio component must be captioned when students who are Deaf/hard of hearing are enrolled in the class and have requested the accommodation. If you would like auditory information provided in Ecampus courses captioned, select “Accessible Audio/Video” when making requests for accommodations on the DAS database.

Please contact the DAS Program Manager of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Access Services at (541) 737-4098 (voice) or DHOH.Services@oregonstate.edu (email) for assistance if any Ecampus courses are inaccessible to you.

Ecampus Student Success provides a variety of additional academic resources for Ecampus students.
