Overview of Accommodations and Services

A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a course, program, service, or activity that enables a qualified student with a disability equal access. 

Use of an accommodation is not reasonable if any of the following apply:

  1. It represents a fundamental alteration of the course/program objectives
  2. It causes an undue financial or administrative burden
  3. It poses a threat to the health or safety of others

DRC authorizes and facilitates the use of accommodations and services for students with disabilities.  Each eligible student receives accommodations based on an individualized assessment of their specific disability-related limitations. A DRC disability specialist will determine this need based on the documentation provided and interactive process with the student.

Students who have been denied their requested accommodation(s) may request reconsideration of the decision through the Accommodation Reconsideration process as detailed in the Dispute Resolution Procedures section.

Students request use of accommodations each term using DRC Online Services. Students experiencing difficulty accessing the online system, should contact the DRC office (909.869.3333).

Instructor Responsibilities

Instructors who have questions or concerns about accommodations approved for a student must consult with DRC. DRC must be involved if any changes are to be made regarding approved accommodations.
