COVID-19 Response

All Access & Campus Equity Services (ACES) accommodations, intakes, and appointments are provided remotely as a safety measure for all students, staff, and faculty in conjunction with the University's COVID-19 Response.

We understand this is a difficult time for many, and remote services are not the preferred method, nor can they be truly accessible for every student. However, it is imperative that we follow these guidelines to ensure the safety of our students, staff, faculty, and community.

ACES staff is working diligently to ensure every qualified student receives the accommodations necessary to provide them with equitable education services and learning opportunities during this time.

If you have questions please feel free to email us at access@oit.edu

Mission

 
Access & Campus Equity Services (ACES) facilitates access to Oregon Tech programs and services for individuals with disabilities through accommodations, education, consultation, and advocacy.

 

Vision

 
Access & Campus Equity Services (ACES) strives to promote a diverse, inclusive, supportive, and accessible learning and working environment for individuals with disabilities. The vision of the office is to promote disability as diversity and ensure individuals with disabilities have full access, inclusion, and belonging in the Oregon Tech community.

 

Functions

 
Oregon Tech's Access & Campus Equity Services (ACES) office, formerly Disability Services, coordinates academic adjustments and auxiliary aids for students with disabilities.

 

Students desiring services to accommodate a disability should contact ACES well in advance of entering Oregon Tech. Appropriate documentation of an impairment that might constitute a disability as defined in the relevant laws will typically be required. The student will meet with ACES staff to determine eligibility and appropriate academic adjustments and aids. Program staff will assist students in communicating information about needs and adjustments to instructors.
