Students who request academic accommodations are required to disclose their disability to the Office of Accessibility Resources (OARS). In addition, they must provide documentation of their disability to support their request. Once it has been determined that students are eligible for reasonable accommodations, you will receive an email notification. Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with each faculty member (or their graduate/professional school liaisons) to discuss implementation of their accommodation(s).

To be eligible for services, self-identify with the Office of Accessibility Resources (OARS) by logging into the New Student Portal and completing the Intake Application, and submitting documentation (please see documentation guidelines).

  • Once the application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by an OARS staff member.
  • Once eligible, you will receive an email to schedule an intake meeting with your assigned coordinator.
  • You can schedule an intake meeting by logging into the AIM portal and selecting Request for Appointment. If you do not receive an appointment confirmation within 48 hours, please email oar@ncat.edu

 

During the intake meeting, your assigned coordinator will meet with you to:

  • Review submitted documentation and discuss any questions or concerns you may have
  • Prepare appropriate forms to provide reasonable accommodations
  • Provide guidance for utilizing AIM, OARS services, and campus resources

 

Please note: All services offered through OARS can take up to two weeks to complete. Specialized services like notetaking, interpreting, captioning, etc. may take longer to process. Please contact our office as early as possible, so we can accommodate you in a timely manner.
