Our Mission

The Office of Disability Services works to ensure that students with disabilities have access to education and campus life at UNC Charlotte. Through collaboration with the institution’s diverse community, Disability Services facilitates accommodations, discourse, and engagement to promote a universally accessible learning environment for all. 

Getting Connected to Disability Services

Registration with the Office of Disability Services (DS) is required for students who wish to receive accommodations.  Click here to learn more about registering for disability accommodations.

To register, students must first submit the appropriate documentation for review. Most students will need to complete the documentation form with their health care provider. Students with learning disabilities will need to submit their most recent full-scale psycho-educational documentation supporting their diagnosis.
