Office Information

The Nevada State College Disability Resource Center (DRC) ensures that all our students with disabilities are afforded the opportunity to access the same educational programs, receive the same information, engage in the same interactions, and be empowered to enjoy the same college experiences as students without disabilities. We recognize our responsibility to provide full access, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Our DRC mission is to create an accessible college community where disability is a neutral and students with disabilities can realize their full potential. We work with students, faculty, and staff to promote students' independence and to ensure assessment of their abilities, not disabilities. Our staff meets with students to review and discuss ability-related needs in order to determine whether accommodations or support services are needed to facilitate campus access.

We coordinate reasonable accommodations including, but not limited to: interpreters or captioning services, extended time for testing, distraction-reduced testing environment, note-taking services, alternative content formatting, and assistive technology. In addition, we are proud to support and serve our active military and veteran students through programs assisting with degree completion.

If you are a student with a documented disability that may require accommodation, we encourage you to contact us for a consultation so we can best meet your needs. Please provide documentation of your disability when you visit us, or we can show you examples of what constitutes documentation. All our services are free and confidential. We strive to facilitate a campus culture of inclusiveness and awareness, and are delighted that you contributed to the vibrance and diversity of our Scorpion family.
