Steps to Register with the OAS

Any student seeking an academic or housing accommodation, even if its temporary, must register with the OAS. Follow the steps below to register:

  1. Submit Documentation of Disability
    Eastern students can register with the OAS using the Student Self-Disclosure Form link to submit documentation of a disability.  
  2. Check Your Eastern Email to Confirm Intake Appointment
    After your documentation has been submitted and reviewed by OAS staff, you will receive an email on your Eastern email account. If your documentation is sufficient, an OAS staff member will schedule an intake appointment with you through email. The review process can take 1-2 weeks, depending on the volume and time of year. 
  3. Attend the Intake Appointment
    The intake appointment consists of discussing potential barriers, securing paperwork and reviewing accommodations that promote full participation. During this appointment, an OAS staff member will discuss protocols and the process of requesting accommodations each semester.
  4. Request Accommodations Each Semester
    Please note that academic accommodations must be requested each semester, as they do not roll over. OAS staff will discuss this process with you during your intake appointment. If your request includes a housing accommodation, it may take additional time to process.
  5. Keep Documentation Updated
    OAS staff might ask you to submit updated documentation if your documentation if it is not current. Additional information regarding documentation can be found on the OAS website, under "Documentation Guidelines."
