The University of Oklahoma is committed to the goal of achieving equal educational opportunity and full participation for students with disabilities. Consistent with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, The University of Oklahoma ensures that no “qualified individual with a disability” will be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination solely on the basis of disability under any program or activity offered by The University of Oklahoma.
Accommodations on the basis of disability are available by contacting the Accessibility and Disability Resource Center (ADRC). Contact information can be found in course syllabi. Students requesting disability-related services or accommodations are required to submit appropriate documentation to substantiate the disability. The ADRC staff will review the documentation and will contact the student to begin an interactive process to obtain the appropriate accommodations. Students can expect to receive a response to their University email account within 15 University business days of the Center’s receipt of the documentation explaining their final eligibility determination.
If students need accommodations regarding Family Medical Leave for Pregnancy or Parenting they may need to contact the ADRC office. Additional pregnancy policy information can be found in section 6 of this handbook.
Information on policies and registration with ADRC may be found on the ADRC website.
