Registering with the OSD


New Undergraduate, Graduate, and Professional School students who have been admitted to UC San Diego and who have “Accepted the Offer” should contact the OSD immediately to schedule an intake appointment. Currently enrolled students should register with the OSD whenever a disabling condition arises. Students enrolled in Extension courses need to contact Annie DeLoach at 858-822-1366 or unex-ssd@ucsd.edu.

If you are Deaf or Hard of Hearing, please email Alejandra at deaf-hohrequest@ucsd.edu to request an appointment with a Disability Specialist. To expedite scheduling, indicate the days/times (Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.) in the subsequent two weeks when you are available. Also indicate if you would like an interpreter or captionist to be present at your appointment.
