Disability Services


It is the mission of Ohio University - Zanesville to ensure equal access and full participation in programs and services for all members of our University community. It is our goal to create an educational environment where individuals are considered on the basis of ability rather than disability.

Each student is given attention on an individual basis to fit the basic requirements that he/she needs to succeed. Ohio University - Zanesville offers the following services for students with disabilities. 

Kurzweil Reader: An excellent multi-purpose computer program that reads text to students that have difficulty seeing, reading or pronouncing words. The spoken word is highlighted on the computer screen during the reading so that the student can follow along. 

Note Takers: Students can have their class notes recorded with help.

Lab Assistants: Students with little computer experience or students who need assistance operating computers can see a Lab Assistant.

Tutoring: Tutors are available to students that need assistance with their coursework. (100-200 level courses only)

Interpreting Services: Service can be provided based on student needs.

Test Accommodations: Instructors will be notified in advance so that arrangements can be made during the course for students with disabilities. Accommodations include allowing students with disabilities extended testing time, use of a scribe, alternate testing formats, and/or the use of a Word Processor.

Counseling: The Learning Advancement Center offers counseling for students with disabilities. 

Accessible Resources: The Ohio University - Zanesville building is fully-accessible to students with mobility impairments. Resources include ramps to the building, wheelchair-accessible restroom facilities, automatic doors, and elevators.
