COVID-19 UPDATE: Disability Services is open and ready to assist you virtually through phone, video conference, and/or email.

New Students: Please contact the Office of Disability Services (ODS) to set up an initial intake appointment with one of our learning specialists as soon as possible. This is your first step in registering with ODS for learning skill support and to develop an accommodation letter. Accommodations are not automatic in higher education and IEP’s and 504 plans do not necessarily carry over from high school.

Returning Students: Please contact your learning specialist to schedule a progress meeting and/or request your accommodation letter for the current semester. Accommodation letters are now requested and shared through Bristol Outlook email by students to instructors.
