Request Accommodations

Requesting Accommodation Procedures

The Office of Access & Equity: Disability Resources (ODR) is the only authorized office to receive disability documentation and determine eligibility for academic adjustments or accommodations on the basis of disability.

ODR engages in a collaborative process and considers each individual’s condition, the request, and the essential elements of Appalachian State University programs, services and activities in determining eligibility. Accommodations are determined individually and are intended to remove  access barriers to ensure equal opportunities for participation.

Accommodations include:

  • appropriate academic adjustments, 
  • auxiliary aids/services, 
  • modifications to policies/procedures,
