Student Life Disability Services (SLDS), in conjunction with the Office of Institutional Equity, works with students who are vulnerable to COVID-19 or face particular challenges because of the pandemic to ensure that they have the necessary resources to participate in university life as safely as possible.
Ohio State students from any campus may submit a COVID-related accommodation request. Students registered with Student Life Disability Services can work directly with their assigned Access Specialist to modify their accommodations or make additional accommodation requests based on COVID-19. If an accommodation is required, the ADA coordinator’s office will facilitate an interactive process that includes SLDS, the instructor and the department/college.
SLDS updated its recommended syllabus statement to include the process for requesting accommodations related to COVID-19. Additional operational adjustments due to COVID-19, including exam accommodations, can be found on the SLDS website.
