Connecting with DRC to request reasonable accommodations is a simple process. Please read through this information to learn more about documentation and other campus resources.
Please note: April 15th is the last day to request note-taking and testing accommodations for the Spring 2015 semester including testing accommodations for Spring Finals. Students completing the Accommodation Request form after April 15th will have access to accommodations in the summer or fall semesters. 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.
- Complete the DRC Accommodation Request Form online.
- Have your UA NetID and password available and know your UA Student Identification number.
- Expect to spend between 5 and 15 minutes.
- Upload documentation about your disability and/or past use of accommodations that will assist DRC in considering your request.
- Scan your documentation and attach the file(s) after completing the request form.

- Everyone is unique. A conversation about your experiences and expectations will help identify the information necessary to support your accommodation requests. Helpful information may include:
- Medical records
- Psychoeducational test reports
- School records
- Don't delay completing the Accommodation Request Form if you don't have any formal disability-related paperwork.
- You are always welcome to talk with an Access Consultant about barriers you are experiencing or anticipate.
- Be aware that other universities and testing agencies (such as GRE or LSAT) may require more extensive documentation. Research their requirements well in advance of requesting accommodations
All new Fall Semester students are required to attend one DRC Orientation. 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 for an Access Consultant. Please 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.
- In this one-hour meeting we will:
- Introduce DRC website and staff
- Discuss how to request individual accommodations, like note-taking and extended time for testing
- Register to take tests at DRC
- Discuss strategies to successfully navigate campus and classroom
- Explain how to talk with faculty about your accommodations
- To make the most of your DRC Orientation, please bring a laptop or tablet and all course syllabi!
