Accessibility Services

Any student who feels s/he may need an accommodation based on the impact of a disability should contact Accessibility Services to discuss his/her specific needs and provide written documentation. Instructors cannot make accommodations until official documentation is received from Accessibility Services so if you are not yet registered as a student with a disability, please contact Nina Henderson hendersn@ohio.edu at Student Accessibility Services or visit them for information about registering.


Please feel free to purchase your textbooks from wherever you choose. We do not require you to purchase from a specific vendor. Please contact individual course instructors for a list of textbooks.
