Our office serves as the campus liaison for students who may experience barriers in
their learning environment due to a disability. We value disability as an aspect of
diversity and are committed to moving our campus towards an equitable and inclusive
environment for all students.
What is the process of getting accommodations through the Office of Disability Services?
Click on Apply for Disability Services and complete our online application (note that the student will need their ATU Username
and Password to submit the completed application). Documentation may be uploaded at
the time of application, brought into the office, faxed, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. After the application is reviewed the student will receive an email from us letting
them know the next steps in the process. An in-depth intake interview between the
student and a DS staff member to discuss the nature of your disabilities, how it has
impacted them in prior academic settings, and with regard to the student's activities
and daily living will be conducted prior to accommodations being issued.
What level of documentation does the student need?

office. If a student suspects that they may have a qualifying disability, they are
encouraged to get in contact with our office to discuss their options.
