How to Qualify for Services

The following is an overview of the process for students admitted to the University of Utah to apply for ADA accommodations.

Contact your CDA advisor at any point in the process for clarification of the steps. This process may take some time to complete, so plan ahead and apply early!  Legally, accommodations are not retroactive.

Process for Students Requesting Accommodations

Step 1:  Online Intake Registration

If you are new to CDA, the first step to request ADA accommodations is to complete the Online Intake Registration form.  You will need an active uNID and CIS login and password.

If you are a non-student, or do not have an active uNID, please call (801) 581-5020 to schedule an intake appointment.

You may choose to upload documentation via the intake form, or you may wait to provide documentation at a later time.


Step 2:  Intake Appointment

After completing the online registration form you will receive an email within 48-72 hours with instructions on how to schedule an Intake Appointment with a CDA Advisor.
