Disability Accommodations Eligibility Information
All students who request accommodations must provide documentation from an appropriate source before they will be recognized by the Disability Resource Center as a person with a disability. (See DRC Forms for a document that can be taken to the appropriate professional which is described in the Documentation Policy Form). The information on the completed form will be kept in a confidential file in the Disability Resource Center office. No information concerning inquiries about accommodation or documentation will be released without written consent.
