Disability Support Services acts as an advocate for students with disabilities and works will 500-600 students per semester. In addition to helping students understand university policies and practices, we assist students in addressing personal and academic concerns. We supply referrals to other university offices when appropriate.
The OU Counseling Center provides testing and assessment
that document the existence of a disability. If testing is required, it will be necessary for the student to make arrangements with the center for an appointment and payment for services.
Priority registration allows students with disabilities the option of enrolling early for university courses. One day before regular registration begins
each semester is designated as priority registration for DSS students. The exact dates of priority registration are posted in the DSS office and a broadcast email notifies DSS students. Priority registration is considered ended when regular early registration begins for all students.
Students Toward Understanding Disabilities (STUD) was formed by students to create awareness and educate the campus community about disability issues and to actively contribute to student life at OU. Contact us to learn how to become involved.
