ClockWork 5 Accommodation Software System

The Center for Disability & Access (CDA) now utilizes the ClockWork 5 Accommodation Software System.  This system streamlines the accommodation process and allows faculty, students, and CDA staff to manage the accommodation process electronically.  Starting in Spring 2022, this system replaces previous CDA accommodation processes.  We appreciate your patience as we transition to the new system.  Please contact CDA at (801) 581-5020 with questions.

Please note that per University policy, all CDA communications to Faculty and Students will be sent to their uNID@utah.edu email address.  We are not able to send emails to alternative email addresses.

To learn more about how to use the ClockWork system please select an option below.  Faculty and students may schedule a 30-minute consultation session on how to use the new system.
