Step-by-Step Access Form Instructions

The ODAI Access Form is your first point of contact with ODAI.  The Access Form will collect information from you about your disability and how it impacts you in various settings, your history of accommodations (if any), and the accommodations you are seeking at CU Anschutz.  The following instructions will assist you in completing your Access Form.  We also have a video tutorial available for you.

When you first access the Access Form, you will be taken to the home screen:

You will need to click on "Start/Resume Application" either in the left side menu, or in the Application Center tile on the top right corner of the grid.  Once you do that, you will be asked to enter your email address:
