New Aggies

To be eligible for services at the college level, you must self-identify by registering on-line through AIM for academic accommodations. To receive accommodations you are required to disclose your disability to the Office of Accessibility Resources (OARS) via AIM. In addition, you must provide and upload documentation of your disability to support the request. Once it has been determined that you are eligible for reasonable accommodations, you will receive an email notification to schedule an initial meeting with an OARS staff member.

  • You can schedule an intake meeting by logging into the AIM portal and selecting Request for Appointment. 
  • If you are unable to request an appointment via AIM, please email with available dates and times. 
  • If you do not receive an appointment confirmation or email within 48 hours, please contact OARS at (336) 334-7765. 


New Students Please Note: We receive documentation and schedule initial appointments throughout the semester. For students submitting documentation for the current semester, it may take up to 2 weeks to process your request.

  • For fall semester, initial meetings will be begin in July.
  • For spring semester, initial meetings will be begin in November.
  • For summer semester, initial meetings will be begin in April. 


During the intake meeting, your assigned coordinator will meet with you to:

  • Review submitted documentation and discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
  • Prepare appropriate forms to provide reasonable accommodations.
  • Provide guidance for utilizing AIM, OARS services, and campus resources.


Specialized services like notetaking, interpreting, captioning, etc. may take longer than two weeks to process. Please contact our office as early as possible, so we can accommodate you in a timely manner.
