ODS Online Portal Now Available

The Office of Disability Services is pleased to announce the ODS Online Portal, a one-stop-shop for students and faculty to manage accommodations. Launched in Fall 2019, the ODS Online Portal offers the functionality to improve accommodation-related communications and services.

  • Students who need to register with ODS will use the portal to submit their application for accommodations and upload their disability documentation.
  • Students who are registered with ODS and receive accommodations will use the portal to send electronic Faculty Notification Letters and manage all accommodation needs (i.e., exam scheduling, alternative format requests, captioning or interpreting requests, etc.).
  • Faculty and course instructors will use the portal to view accommodation requests that have been submitted for each course, and submit proctoring information and exam materials to the ODS Testing Center.

For more information about the new portal, visit ods.ua.edu/ods-online-portal, or attend an upcoming Q&A session
