Prospective OSD Students


Students who require accommodations from the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) must first apply for admission to Florida Atlantic University as degree seeking or non-degree seeking and be accepted. Once accepted, new students should follow these steps in order to register for support services from this office:

Step 1


    a.  Complete all sections of the Application for Support Services including the Applicant’s Self-report and submit to OSD.

    b. Submit copies of your college transcripts. If less than 60 college credits, you must also submit high school transcripts (unofficial transcripts are acceptable).

Step 2

DOCUMENTATION:  Submit a copy of your most recent documentation of disability to OSD. For documentation guidelines, please refer to the brochure pertaining to your specific disability. Brochures are available in the OSD or online at
If you have other supporting documentation, such as an IEP, 504 Plan, and/or SOP, please submit the most recent copy as well.  

ALSO  Transfer Student: Provide a letter from your previous institution stating the accommodations that were provided to you.


INTAKE INTERVIEW: You will be called for an intake interview with an OSD counselor after the Application and appropriate documentation have been received and reviewed. This interview will give you an opportunity to meet your OSD counselor. You will be asked to provide information about your experience of disability, barriers you’ve encountered, as well as effective and ineffective prior accommodations. Your appropriate accommodations will then be determined based on an interactive process between you and your OSD counselor. You will also receive information about other support services available at FAU.
