Students

Orientation

At the start of each fall semester, all new students are required to attend one DRC Orientation session.  Orientation will provide you an opportunity to meet with DRC staff and to set up accommodations like note-taking and testing.  Attending DRC Orientation may replace an individual meeting with an Access Consultant.  We welcome you to come with questions!  Note that spring semester students are not required to attend an orientation, but will receive the same information during their scheduled appointments with their assigned Access Consultant.

Requesting Accommodations

You are about to complete the DRC New Student form.  Accommodation requests for testing (including final exams) or note-taking are unable to be processed for the current semester. The information you provide will be reviewed and you will be contacted by DRC staff to discuss any Spring 2015 requests shortly.

Other accommodation requests will be reviewed and you will be contacted by DRC staff to discuss as appropriate. Please note that the end of the semester is our busiest time at the DRC, but we will make all attempts to contact you as soon as possible.

The Role of DRC

DRC is the campus department designated by the University to determine and provide access to University classes, programs and activities for disabled individuals. Through an interactive process, we will facilitate access either through determining a reasonable accommodation or by redesigning aspects of a University experience. Our processes are designed to be convenient for students.
