The Disability Resource Center (DRC) at UNF offers a wide variety of legally mandated services to students with documented disabilities. After reviewing your documentation and conducting an Intake Interview, a member of the DRC Team will assist in determining appropriate academic services and accommodations based on your unique needs in an academic setting.
At the University level, students have the right not to be identified as disabled. For this reason, if a student with a disability would like to request academic accommodations, he/she takes the responsibility of contacting the DRC. In order for the DRC to assist the student with academic accommodations, the student must provide written documentation of the disability from a diagnosing and licensed professional.
In order to process requests in a timely manner and to assist you as you make your transition to our campus, we request that you:
Step 1: Send in current disability documentation. Upon receipt of your documentation (see Documentation Guidelines and Forms), a member of the DRC Team will review the materials. You may also submit your Individual Educational Plan (IEPs) and Summary of Performance (SOPs), but these documents do not substitute for the documentation requirement. You will be contacted if additional information is needed to determine eligibility for services.
Step 2: Expect a letter from the DRC office to schedule an appointment after all necessary documents are received and reviewed.
Step 3: Attend an intake appointment with a DRC staff member to determine appropriate accommodations based on the submitted documentation and a discussion of your needs.
Step 4: Pick up letters to deliver to your professors which will list your recommended accommodations (not details of your disability).
Step 5: Schedule a meeting with each of your professors to discuss recommended accommodations in each class.
IMPORTANT: Students, you need to fill out the ACCOMMODATION REQUEST FORM at the BEGINNING OF EACH SEMESTER in order to RECEIVE SERVICES.
The DRC Office is located in Building 57, Room 1500.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
