:: Disability Accommodations

We will make every effort to accommodate students with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations are those that do not cause undue burden and do not fundamentally alter course requirements.

Please contact us before you officially enroll so that we can assist you.

  • If you are enrolling in a semester classroom or online cohort course, please contact us at least two weeks prior to the first day of classes.
  • If you are enrolling in a self-paced online course and are seeking a testing-related accommodation, we suggest you follow the steps to pursue an accommodation at least one month before you plan to take your first proctored exam.

University Extension does not and cannot collect documentation directly. We direct students pursuing an accommodation to contact Linda Millstone, UT’s ADA Coordinator, at lindam@austin.utexas.edu or (512) 471-2437. You will be asked for documentation that describes the nature of your disability and the kind of accommodation that your disability requires. If you are a UT Austin student registered with the university’s Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) office, you can contact your SSD coordinator directly. It is very important you explain to your coordinator which course type you are taking (semester classroom, semester online cohort, or self-paced online) as well as the course name and number.

Building Accessibility

Accessibility information is available on the UT accessibility map.

Click the area of campus you would like to review and refer to the symbol legend to find the accessible pathways and entrances to your assigned building. (You can also search by building name and click “Area accessibility.”)

Parking

Before 4 p.m., persons with disabilities with an appropriately approved state placard and UT “D” permit may park in any of the surface parking spots on campus reserved for UT D permit holders. After 4 p.m., only the state placard is required. University garage space is reserved during the day and evening for persons with disabilities (parking fees apply).
