How to Register with the ODA
Note: Students must be admitted to UNT before registering with our office.
The Office of Disability Access (ODA) at the University of North Texas is committed to providing equal access to UNT students with disabilities. Please keep in mind that the process below must be completed before the ODA can provide academic accommodations. On average, the process takes 2-4 weeks to complete after submission of the AIM application and documentation. The timeline depends on a number of different factors, including the nature or complexity of the requested accommodations, the submission and evaluation of supporting documentation, and the availability of coordinators for scheduling appointments.
We advise students to start the registration process as early as possible. Incoming first year students or transfer students are advised to start the process as soon as they have been admitted to UNT. Current UNT students should contact the ODA as soon as they have established a need for accommodations.
Accommodations are not applied retroactively, so it is important to begin the process as soon as possible.
In order to register for services at the ODA, please complete the following steps:
Complete a Registration Form. Login to the AIM Student Portal and complete the request for services form. Use your UNT email address. To log into AIM, instructions can be found at How to access AIM - New Students.
Submit documentation. Provide documentation of disability or medical condition that supports each accommodation request. For documentation requirements by disability, see those pages on this website.
Upload documentation via AIM,
Email documentation to Apply.ODA@unt.edu, or
Fax to 940-369-7969 (* Due to on-going concerns regarding COVID-19 and as some of our staff moves to working remotely, please email or upload documentation as there may be a delay in processing documentation that is faxed).
Attend a Registration Meeting. After your documentation and Registration 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.
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 will receive an email from your coordinator with instructions about how to request Letters of Accommodation.
