The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center Student Handbook 2018-2019

2.16 - Reasonable Accommodation Policy

The University of Oklahoma is committed to the goal of achieving equal educational opportunity and full participation for students with disabilities. Consistent with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, The University of Oklahoma ensures that no “qualified individual with a disability” will be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination solely on the basis of disability under any program or activity offered by The University of Oklahoma.                                       

Accommodations on the basis of disability are available by contacting the Disability Resource Center (DRC) by email, drc@ou.edu, or by calling (405) 325-3852 Voice or (405) 325-4173 TDD. Students requesting disability-related services or accommodations are required to submit appropriate documentation to substantiate the disability. DRC staff will review the documentation and send an e-mail to the student's university e-mail account that explains the eligibility determination. Students can expect to receive an initial response within fifteen (15) University business days of the Center's receipt of the documentation. Students with disabilities will then schedule an appointment for an initial intake procedure with the Disability Resource Center staff.  During this appointment, DRC staff and the student will engage in an interactive process and discuss any history of accommodation, strengths and limitations, and review policies/procedures.

Information on policies and registration with Disability Resource Center may be found on the DRC website.
