The Center for Disability & Access is dedicated to students with disabilities by providing
the opportunity for success and equal access at the University of Utah.



CDA Community:  We recognize there is a high degree of uncertainty and concern as the University responds to the growing COVID-19 crisis.  As of March 18 all university instruction will be conducted on-line.  The CDA is here to support students and faculty through this transition and attempt to provide as much continuity of accommodations as possible.  Please be aware that a sudden change of this magnitude is unprecedented and our staff is working hard to determine how processes and procedures need to be adapted to this new temporary reality.  If you need to schedule an initial intake appointment, have exam or note taking questions, need to reach your advisor, or have any other questions please use this online form.  Up to date information regarding the University of Utah's response to COVID-19 can be found at  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

FACULTY: During the COVID-19 crisis ADA accommodations remain in effect and must be provided to students.  Please visit the Faculty CDA Covid Information page.  Thank you for your support. 

STUDENTS: During Summer 2020, all accommodations will be handled electronically utilizing accommodation memos in PDF format.  Yellow exam forms will not be issued.  To request accommodations for your summer courses please contact your advisor.  You may also complete the accommodation request on the CDA Client Portal.
