For students who have quick or urgent questions, we now offer daily walk-in hours*, during which students can meet with an Office of Disability Services (ODS) staff member for an individual walk-in meeting, up to 15 minutes long. Students who stop by the office at times outside of the walk-in hours schedule will be advised to either make an appointment or return to ODS during drop-in hours or to schedule an appointment.

  • Guidance on self-advocacy (with professors, staff, peers, etc.)
  • Releases of information
