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.
