Helping students with a disability or disabilities succeed is the mission of the Office of Disability Accommodations (ODA) at The University of Southern Mississippi.
The ODA works on an individual basis with students eligible for accommodations in the classroom outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to develop and coordinate reasonable accommodations specific to their disabilities. It achieves this goal through intake and evaluation of students seeking its services, and working with academic units on the Hattiesburg and Gulf Park campuses to ensure full participation and access for students with disabilities.
