Welcome to UAF - Disability Services!


About Disability Services

At UAF Disability Services, our goal is to provide UAF students with access to academic classes and course materials through an interactive accommodation process.

UAF Disability Services provides accommodations to students on the Fairbanks campus as well as on the Bristol Bay, Chukchi, Interior Aleutians, Kuskokwim, Northwest, Community Technical College (CTC), UAF eLearning & Distance Education, and College for Rural and Community Development (CRCD) campuses.

Students using community campuses or distance learning programs should contact Disability Services via telephone, fax, e-mail, U.S. postal mail, or in person to request and arrange for accommodations.

We enjoy supporting individuality, promoting independence and celebrating graduations.


Quick Helpful Facts:

UAF is obligated to provide accommodation only to the known limitations of an otherwise qualified student who has a disability. Please identify yourself to UAF Disability Services by applying for accommodations.

To be considered for UAF Disability Services accommodations individuals must be enrolled for at least one credit as a UAF student.

Applications for services can be hand-delivered, emailed, faxed or mailed to Disability Services.

If you need assistance with completion of any form, contact UAF Disability Services by email at uaf-disabilityservices@alaska.edu, by phone at (907)474-5655, or by TTY at (907)474-1827.

Winter Accessibility

From mid-September to the end of April the UAF campus experiences snow and ice. The conditions may pose particular challenges to individuals with mobility or visual impairments. We encourage students to identify themselves to the Disability Services office so that we can best assist with safe routes and priority snow removal.
