Online Application for Services

Fall 2020 Students:   

Academic accommodation requests for incoming freshmen and transfer students starting Fall 2020 will be accepted starting the week of May 18, 2020. Any applications submitted before May 18 will not be reviewed. To ensure that your application for Fall is reviewed at the appropriate time, please submit after May 18.

Faxed Documents:

As the University of Cincinnati is working remotely, Accessibility Resources staff will not be able to check our fax machine to retrieve any documentation. Therefore, please do not submit documentation or other documents via fax to our office. Our preferred method is for you to upload your documentation to the Online Application for Services. This will allow the Accessibility Resources staff member to view all of your documents at one time to determine eligibility for services. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at: accessresources@uc.edu   

Accessibility Resources (AR) responsibility is to create an environment where students with disabilities feel welcomed as our staff work to determine reasonable and appropriate accommodations which would lessen the impact of their disability within the academic setting. The process of determining reasonable and appropriate accommodations relies heavily on the interactive process between the student and Accessibility Resources. Our Online Application for Services represents an important piece in that process and provides Accessibility Resources with valuable information to determine accommodations now and possibility in the future, should a need arise. When completing this application please take the time to thoroughly answer all the questions.

This application must be completed by a student seeking accommodations and services from our office. Documentation of disability is required and must be received from a qualified professional, i.e., someone with direct experience specific to the disability diagnosis. For example, documentation from an Optometrist (eye specialist) denoting that a student has a mental health condition would not be accepted.  We accept documentation from a variety of sources including; IEPs, 504 Plans, psychological evaluations, medical records, letters provided by qualified medical professionals or a Medical Professional Disability Verification Form. Once available, documentation must be uploaded to this application for review. Please refer to our documentation guidelines for more information. An application cannot be saved and completed at a later date so do not start this application until you have all required documentation.

If you need assistance in completing this form or require accommodations to do so, please contact Accessibility Resources 513-556-6823 or email accessresources@uc.edu
