Registration Process

Audience: A student not currently registered with UHCL Disability Services including first year college students, transfer students, and veterans.

It is your responsibility to register with Disability Services and request accommodations.

To register with Disability Services, complete the registration process:

  1. Submit an Initial Accommodation Request Form.
    Expect an email in 2 business days confirming that we received your request.
  2. Provide documentation of your disability by mail, fax, or in person. Your health care provider may also submit the documentation directly to our office.
  3. Arrange an appointment to meet with our staff. If you are not able to meet with us in person, we can communicate with you by phone or email.
  4. After you register with our office or request a change to your accommodations, we present your request to the Academic Accommodations Evaluation Committee (AAEC). The AAEC meets once per week or as needed. Although applications for Disability Services are accepted at any point during the academic calendar, time is needed to verify the disability and/or to arrange accommodations, which are determined on an individualized, case-by-case basis.
  5. After the AAEC determines appropriate accommodations, we draft accommodation letters and notify you through your UHCL email when they are ready.

First Year Students

We provide the following resources to assist you in the transition from high school to college:


Our office provides accommodations to veterans with disabilities. Our communication and meetings are discreet and confidential. We respect your service to our country.

The Veteran Services Office is UHCL's primary point of contact for all military and veteran services. The Veteran Services staff is committed to helping you and your eligible dependents with federal and state education benefits and act as a liaison between Veterans, the University, and the Department of Veteran Affairs.
