Needing academic accommodations? Think you might need them? Get registered with DRC so accommodations can be implemented quickly if needed. Whether you are attending courses on the Nevada State College campus or taking online courses, the DRC is ready to assist you.
Provision of reasonable accommodations is determined individually, based on the nature of the student’s disability, the environmental barriers encountered, and the content of documentation provided. Please feel free to take a look at examples of accommodations which may be available. Students can register with the DRC and request accommodations at any point during the semester, but accommodations are not retroactive.
For current DRC students, log-in to request your accommodations.
A student registering for approval of Accommodations for a disability is required to provide Documentation of the disability to the Disability Resource Center (DRC). A diagnosis related to a disability must be made by a professional with the appropriate credentials for diagnosing/identifying the specific disability.
Documentation is required for the following three purposes:
Documentation must include:
DRC staff will determine whether the evaluation Documentation is sufficiently current. The DRC Director or Assistant Director will combine the Documentation with information attained during the intake interview and approve appropriate and reasonable Accommodations on a case-by-case basis.
In order for a student with a disability to be approved for Accommodations, the student must first submit appropriate documentation for review.
The student requesting Accommodations should submit documentation to the DRC no less than fourteen (14) working days prior to the first class meeting.
Once the review of provided documentation has been complete, the student will be contacted by the DRC to schedule an intake appointment.
Prior to the intake appointment, the student should create a student profile within the DRC AIM (myDRC) database. DRC staff can assist students in locating the DRC AIM (myDRC) database from the Nevada State College website and portal.
If the Documentation provided is not sufficient, in the DRC’s sole discretion subject to applicable law, DRC staff will explain to the student what kind of Documentation is needed.
Additionally, the Director or Assistant Director can discuss options for obtaining the necessary Documentation if the student is unsure if the Documentation is available.
Once you’ve reviewed the requirements, get started with the DRC and register today.
