Welcome to UAF Disability Services!
At UAF Disability Services, our goal is to provide UAF students with access to academic classes and course materials through an interactive accommodation process.
UAF Community: We recognize there is a high degree of uncertainty and concern as the University responds to the growing COVID-19 crisis. As university instruction moves to alternative delivery methods, Disability Services is here to support students and faculty through this transition and attempt to provide as much continuity of accommodations as possible. Please be aware that a sudden change of this magnitude is unprecedented and our staff is working hard to determine how processes and procedures need to be adapted to this new temporary reality. If you have questions regarding accommodations please contact our office. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
To assist with social distancing, especially with students who fall into the Center for Disease Control’s categories of high risk, the Disability Office is closed to walk-ins. All services provided by our office, including appointments, will be provided virtually.
Additionally, with the movement to alternative delivery methods of course delivery for the remainder of the semester, proctoring services for testing will no longer be offered on site through our office. Please check your course sites in Blackboard for updated information and guidance. You will need to work directly with your instructors for exams. Instructor contact information can be found on Blackboard or in your syllabus. Please be patient with faculty as they set up their courses for online delivery. When it comes time for an exam, you may want to send a friendly email reminder to make sure your extended time is set up in advance.
To contact Disability Services, we encourage you to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your patience as we bring our services to the virtual environment.
