Office of Disability Resources

The Office of Disability Resources (ODR) coordinates reasonable and appropriate accommodations for qualified students with disabilities. These accommodations are based on individual student profiles and may include – but are not limited to – extended time on tests, note-taking assistance, accessible dorm rooms, sign language interpreters, electronic texts, and distraction-reduced testing sites.

In order to receive services, students must provide professional documentation of a substantially limiting condition and discuss appropriate accommodations with the ODR. Documentation guidelines for specific disabilities may be found on the Disability Resources web site or by requesting it from the office at 540/654-1266. The ODR verifies the disability, determines reasonable accommodations in collaboration with the student, and acts as a liaison with students, faculty, and administration as needed on issues relating to services or accommodations.
