Get started:

  1. Download and complete the Application for Disability Support Services.
  2. Collect relevant documentation (testing, assessment, and letters from medical practitioners less than three years old) that document your disability, how it impacts your education, and what accommodations are being requested.
  3. Call Disability Support Services at   256.824.1997 to schedule an intake appointment with Kelly Cothran.
  4. Complete a Letter of Accommodation Request form and bring it with you to your scheduled intake appointment.

Next steps:

  • Once all the above steps are complete, a Letter of Accommodation will be emailed to you at your UAH email address within 24 hours following your intake appointment.
  • Print your Letter of Accommodation and provide copies to your professors. Professors appreciate having knowledge ahead of time to prepare, so feel free to email them a copy with a short email letting them know you will be attending their class before classes begin. When you meet, provide each professor with a hard copy of the LOA and ask them to sign the Letter of Accommodation Receipt form. After signatures are collected, turn the form back in to Disability Support Services.

Important

A new Letter of Accommodation Request is necessary for every semester you want accommodations.
