Disability Services


UNT Dallas provides reasonable accommodations to qualified students with disabilities in accordance with state and federal laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Disability Services staff assist qualified students with disabilities in determining and coordinating appropriate reasonable accommodations and/or auxiliary aids and services, to the extent necessary, for qualified prospective, newly admitted or currently enrolled students. Students with disabilities can register for services with the Office of Disabilities after being accepted to UNT Dallas and registering for classes. In order to register for services, students must contact UNTD disability services staff schedule an intake appointment.

Students must provide documentation of their disability in accordance with University policy. Students requesting a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) must provide the supporting documentation from their physician, educational diagnostician, licensed psychologist, psychiatrist, or other qualified professional. Documentation received will be considered in determining whether a student is disabled as defined by the ADA, and therefore entitled to reasonable accommodation. For more information, please click here to see the University’s policy (16.004) on disability accommodation for students.

Students with questions or concerns and those wishing to request an accommodation should call Cynthia Suarez, the Assistant Director of Disability Services, at 972-338-1777.  Individuals who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, deaf-blind or speech-disabled may contact the Disability Services Office by using Relay Texas. To contact Relay TX dial 7-1-1. The Office of Disabilities is now located in the Student Center, ground floor, Suite 1104.
