DISABILITY STATEMENT: Oklahoma Baptist University complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Students with disabilities who need special accommodations must make their requests and submit documentation to Student Services at 405.585.5261. The Student Services office is located in the Geiger Center, Room 101.
The Disability Services area exists for assisting students who have specific learning or physical disabilities. A student must "self-identify" in order to be considered for reasonable accommodations and must provide appropriate documentation, which verifies the disability. After reviewing the documentation, we will schedule a meeting to be held with the student and appropriate accommodations are discussed at that time. The final step involves the student and professors agreeing to the accommodations. Questions relating to special needs may be directed to us at 405.585.5261.
