Eligibility

To determine eligibility, students should submit documentation that is recent and includes relevant information about current functioning and/or expected barriers to full access or participation in the university's courses, programs, services or activities. Please contact the Office of Academic Accessibility (OAA) via email or phone with any questions. Registration procedures and documentation guidelines can be found on the Registration and Documentation webpages. Contact information can be found on each page of the OAA website in the lower right corner.

The Office of Academic Accessibility recognizes areas of disability including, but not limited to:

  • ATTENTION
  • DEVELOPMENTAL
  • DEAF/HARD-OF-HEARING
  • LEARNING
  • MEDICAL/HEALTH-RELATED
  • PHYSICAL
  • PSYCHOLOGICAL/PSYCHIATRIC
  • BLIND/LIMITED VISION

Disclosure of a disability, impairment, condition, or limitation to an individual professor, program, department, or any entity other than the Office of Academic Accessibility is not considered an official notification to the University nor a request for reasonable accommodations.

If you are unsure whether or not you have a disability, please feel free to contact the Office of Academic Accessibility. UNC Asheville does not provide assessments for documentation purposes. If you have (or suspect you may have) a learning disability or attentional disability, we maintain a list of local assessment resources that you are welcome to request.
