Disability Services

Welcome to Disability Services at Ohio Northern University.

Ohio Northern does not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities. Accordingly, the school will provide reasonable academic accommodations when the student provides sufficient documentation describing his or her disability and the accommodation(s) requested in accordance with school procedures.

It is important to note that colleges and universities have different guidelines than high schools relating to what documentation is required for accommodations to be granted, and it is encouraged that students review all of the materials below thoroughly before requesting accommodations.
