The mission of Disability Support Services (DSS) is to empower, support, and advocate for students who experience disabilities by partnering with the University community in the provision of equal access to all curricular and co-curricular programs, facilities, services, and activities.

Disability Support Services (DSS) coordinates the support services for UAA students who experience disabilities, as well as provides resources for the university and community. Providing equal opportunities for students who experience disabilities is a campus-wide responsibility and commitment.

Students requesting accommodations for the first time need to make an appointment with our office to establish eligibility. Early planning is encouraged to allow DSS staff adequate time to make the necessary arrangements for support services. Accommodations and services are not retroactive and begin after the intake process when faculty are notified by the DSS staff.

Once eligibility has been determined, students login to the DSS Online System to make specific requests each semester.

  • Enter Course Reference Numbers for each class
  • Select the adjustments that are needed
  • Submit for faculty notification
  • For testing accommodations, when you receive your syllabus, come back to DSS to schedule exams for the semester
