Emotional Support Animals

Service and Assistance Animal Policy

The University of Dallas ensures that people with disabilities who use service and/or assistance animals will be able to receive the benefit of the tasks these animals provide or the therapeutic support they offer in accordance with the requirements of federal law. The student must submit the appropriate Medical Accommodation Form, which is available through the Coordinator of Services for Students with Disabilities Office. This form is due no later than June 1st for the fall semester and October 1st for the spring semester. While applications submitted after these dates will be accepted and considered, UD cannot guarantee that it will be able to meet late applicants’ first building preference for accommodation.
