The Disability Resource Center's Process

  • Access consultants in the Disability Resource Center (DRC) meet with students to discuss how their condition impacts their educational pursuits.  They then determine accommodations that are reasonable based on these impacts and the courses they are taking.
  • Each semester, students are responsible for requesting a current accommodation letter and they are responsible for delivering it  to each of their instructors.  
  • In addition to delivering the accommodation letter, students and instructors should discuss how to best implement the accommodations in each class.
  • Students are responsible for requesting accommodations as early in the term as possible  because the DRC does not require instructors to provide retroactive accommodations.
  • Students, access consultants, and instructors maintain contact throughout the semester as necessary to discuss any questions or concerns that may arise regarding the essential course requirements and implementing accommodations.
