Disability Careers Office

Working together for your success

What it the DCO?

In cooperation with UT Career Services and the Office of Disability Services, the Disability Careers Office (DCO) assists individual college students and alumni who have various disabilities by providing career planning services and guidance pertaining to their specific disability related issues.

The DCO provides assistance to all students with a documented disability as evidenced by their registration with the Office of Disability Services and/or with Tennessee Vocational Rehabilitation Services.

If you believe you have a disability, but you have not registered, please contact the Office of Disability Services at 865-974-6087 or visit http://ods.utk.edu/. Learn more about eligibility requirements and services provided through Tennessee Vocational Rehabilitation Services.
