Online Student Application

Two easy steps to register
By completing this application, you are requesting for the review of potential accommodations at The University of Akron. I understand that the Office of Accessibility recommends submitting this application, documentation, and connecting with the office early to start the process for support and accommodations. Students are encouraged to start the process by May, or three months prior to the first day of your first semester. Though students may start the registration process at any time, delaying the start of the registration process could prevent students from scheduling an intake, and having an accommodation plan prior to the start of the semester.

The Office of Accessibility utilizes both traditional and expedited registration processes. While both registration processes are student driven and require interaction with the Office of Accessibility, the traditional process requires an intake appointment whereas the expedited does not. In cases of the traditional registration process, students must attend an intake appointment with their assigned Disability Specialist, in order to determine eligibility for services and to review necessary policies and procedures associated with accommodations. In cases of the expedited registration process, qualifying students are notified via email of accommodation approvals, which are determined by their assigned Disability Specialist during the review of the student's application and documentation. Rather than attending an intake appointment, the student is responsible for reviewing the office and accommodation policy and procedure information, independently. For qualifying students who choose to complete an expedited registration process, it is their responsibility to contact the office after completing the expedited registration if they have a desire to meet with their Disability Specialist. Please note, although a student may indicate they are interested in completing an expedited registration process, approval cannot be guaranteed, and will be determined by the office during the review of the student application. In cases where a student indicates interest in an expedited registration process, but it’s determined they do not qualify, they will be expected to complete a traditional registration process and attend an intake appointment to determine their eligibility for accommodations.

By submitting the application listed below, you agree to the following:
  • I understand that admission to The University of Akron is a separate process.
  • I understand the Office of Accessibility recommends starting, and completing, the registration process early.
  • I understand I must submit documentation of my disability(ies), be enrolled in classes and have a current class schedule prior to meeting with a specialist for an intake appointment.
  • I authorize the Office of Accessibility to contact my physician to clarify any questions regarding my documentation.
  • I understand that submitting this form and following the recommended timeline does not automatically qualify me for accommodations and/or services as the university reserves the right to determine appropriate documentation and if accommodations are warranted.
  • I understand I will not be eligible to receive services until all documentation is provided and appropriate next steps are completed.
  • I understand that if upon review of the application and documentation, it is determined that I qualify for an expedited registration process, I will be notified by the Office of Accessibility.
  • I understand that The University of Akron's Office of Accessibility determines documentation guidelines and what reasonable accommodations may be warranted based on the impact of disability(ies) and acknowledges that accommodation plans may differ between other public universities and the high school environment.
