Disabilities

Disabilities within the Old Dominion University campus community include ADD/HD, learning, medical, and psychological disabilities. Students with disabilities can be best served at the Office of Educational Accessibility, located at 1021 Student Success Center. University faculty, staff, and administrators with disabilities can be best served at the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity. The University Section 504/ADA Coordinator is ReNee S. Dunman, Assistant Vice President for Equity and Diversity in the OIED.

Old Dominion University is committed to providing students with documented disabilities the same opportunity to achieve academic success as it provides for all students. The provision of services to students with documented disabilities at Old Dominion University is based on the principle of non-discrimination and accommodation in academic programs set forth in the implementing regulations for Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. These services will be provided within the basic guidelines to follow, with the understanding that students with disabilities may require unique accommodations and must have their needs assessed on a case-by-case basis. The provision of accommodations for students with documented disabilities need not guarantee students equal results or achievement; accommodations must only afford them an equal opportunity for achievement.
