The Office of Disability Services is the campus office designated to determine accommodations for UNC Charlotte students with disabilities. Our approach is student-centered, strength-based, and interactive.
Disability Services offers a wide range of academic accommodations that are individualized and based upon the student’s documented disability. Once documentation has been approved, students meet with a DS counselor to determine their accommodations. This remains a collaborative process throughout the student's time at UNC Charlotte. If any changes arise with accommodation needs, students should contact their DS counselor to discuss.
It is important to understand that accommodations are not retroactive and only begin once students notify their faculty by providing their accommodation letter. Further, students are advised to meet with their faculty to discuss their accommodations. Students in online classes should follow up with faculty via email to discuss accommodations.
Though not an exhaustive list, the following are some of the accommodations available to students when appropriate:
- Accessible Classrooms and Furniture
- Assistive Technology
- Class Notes
- Foreign Language Substitution
- Interpreting and CART Services
- FM Systems
- Testing Accommodations
- Text Conversion (Alternate Format)
