Office of Access and Learning Accommodation

You have chosen to continue your education at a school with a long history of inclusion of students with disabilities. We're excited to meet you! The Office of Access and Learning Accommodation (OALA) creates an encouraging, supportive, and caring environment where students with disabilities feel they are accepted and valued as individuals.  This is achieved by showing compassion, patience, and open-mindedness as well as through teaching responsibility.

Welcome to Baylor University!

Our team at the Office of Access and Learning Accommodation is here for you!

Find out more information about the services we provide, take a look at our facilities, and register for our services.

During Orientation, we are happy to meet with you and discuss accommodations in one-on-one virtual appointments from June 8 throughout the month of June. Please sign up for an appointment here.

You can follow the process to request accommodations or services. We encourage you to start the registration process as soon as possible. Certain accommodations can take a few weeks to put into place. The sooner we can start working with you on an accommodation plan, the more likely it will be in place by the time you need it. This helps us accommodate the large numbers of new students each fall. Even if you are unsure about using accommodations, you can establish eligibility now, so accommodations can be implemented quickly should you need them.

Email us to learn more! We look forward to meeting you.
