D&A is currently offering intake appointments to students via phone or Zoom.
Students interested in setting up academic accommodations through D&A should follow the steps below:
(1) Submit Documentation: Students should submit documentation of their disability that meets D&A documentation guidelines and, if applicable, a history of accommodations in prior educational environments to D&A. Students may also have their provider complete a Verification Form specific to their disability type to serve as documentation. Documentation should be emailed to email@example.com or faxed to 512-475-7730. Documentation should include the student’s name, EID, email address and phone number so students can be notified when their documentation arrives.
(2) Schedule an Intake Appointment: Once the student has been notified that the submitted documentation meets D&A’sdocumentation guidelines (typically via email 5 business days after submitting documentation for review), students should call D&A at (512) 471-6259 to schedule an initial intake appointment with a Coordinator.
(3) Complete required forms: Students will receive an email with instructions for forms and policies and procedures students should review prior to their appointment.
(4) Complete Intake Appointment: At the time of the appointment, the Coordinator will connect with the student via phone or Zoom to discuss what accommodations and services are available from D&A and other University offices and what academic, programmatic and/or physical accommodations might be appropriate to remove or reduce the barriers the student is experiencing.
5) Sign Documents: Students will need to sign and submit the Acceptance of Services (which will be generated during the intake appointment) to finalize the registration process and allow them to start using their accommodations.
Note: All disability related information including medical documentation, educational correspondence, and educational accommodation records are considered confidential. The University of Texas and D&A have an obligation to maintain the confidentiality of such documentation.
