Request Reasonable Accommodation Through the Appropriate Office

Since UNT, UNT Dallas, and the UNT Health Science Center are separate campuses and have their own disability service support staff, you must apply for services at each campus where you are enrolled. The UNT Denton ODA does not make recommendations for classes held at UNT Dallas or the UNT Health Science Center and has no supervisory role over these offices. If you need services for classes held at the UNT Dallas campus, go to Services at UNT Dallas. For reasonable accommodations at the UNT Health Science Center, go to UNT Health Science Center in Fort Worth.

How to Register with the ODA

Please keep in mind that the process below must be completed before the ODA can provide academic accommodation. On average, the process takes two-three weeks to complete.  However, if your documentation does not meet all the requirements listed on the documentation page, there may be further delays.

  1. Submit your documentation and Request for Reasonable Accommodation form to the ODA in person, by email (apply.oda@unt.edu), or by fax (940) 369-7969.  For documentation requirements by disability, see those pages on this website.
  2. After your documentation and Request Form is reviewed, the ODA will contact you to set up a Registration Meeting with your ODA Coordinator which can occur either in our office or on the phone if you are a distance learner.  At this meeting, you will discuss the registration process, accommodations requested, services available, and how accommodations are provided.  If more information is required, you will be informed how to go about acquiring the additional information. You must resubmit your documentation with this updated information in order to proceed.
  3. You must attend this meeting in order to complete the registration process.   If you are more than 10 minutes late, you may be asked to reschedule.

Once your registration is complete, you are ready to request use of accommodations. Please visit "Utilizing Your Accommodations" for more information.
