Accessibility & Accomodation Services
Disability services at Pacific University are coordinated by the Office of Accessibility and Accommodation (OAA) Services.
The OAA, previously known as Learning Support Services (LSS), coordinates educational accommodations for students with a documented disability. Disabilities may be physical or learning related, and may be permanent or temporary.
Academic standards require qualified documentation to receive accommodation. Students are responsible for furnishing this documentation to the university through the OAA.
The OAA uploads Faculty and Housing Accommodation Notifications on behalf of our students to an OAA Confidential Folder in BOX. In order to receive email notifications for your folder, please setup Email Settings on BOX OAA Confidential Folders
To help them succeed, Pacific University welcomes students to be forthcoming about their status and needs at any time. Visit our Getting Started page for more information.
