Old Dominion University is committed to increasing opportunities for success for persons with disabilities.
The University is responsible for providing a reasonable accommodation to the known disability of an otherwise qualified employee, applicant or student once they make their disability status and subsequent need for an accommodation known to the appropriate University official.
In general, it is the responsibility of the employee, applicant or student to make the disability status and subsequent need for an accommodation known to the appropriate University official. Once on notice of the need for accommodations, it is the responsibility of the University official and the individual with a disability to discuss possible accommodations and assess the reasonableness and effectiveness of each potential accommodation. Determinations regarding accommodations on campus will be made on a case-by-case basis. Determining a reasonable accommodation is very fact-specific. In general, the accommodation must be tailored to address the nature of the disability and the needs of the individual within the context of the requirements of the job or the program of study.
