DRC Accommodations During Mandatory On-line Time Period

 

All courses for the remainder of Spring semester through Summer Sessions A and C will be conducted remotely, no decision regarding Summer Session B has been made. Please continue to monitor UNF communications for information concerning when normal operations will resume. We ask that students continue to monitor alerts and the coronavirus website for updates, resources and FAQs.

 

All DRC staff will work remotely during this time. If you need assistance with accommodation concerns, please email drc@unf.edu. Please allow 48 business hours for a response. Individual staff members are also available at their university email address during this time. DRC staff are listed on the DRC web site.

Testing:

Students should contact the DRC if they have disability-related barriers to completing an exam within Canvas or have accommodation-related requests. (drcexams@unf.edu)  The DRC will not facilitate or proctor exams while we work in a distance learning format. Professors should contact CIRT for assistance with providing (accommodated) extended time on exams in Canvas. (cirtlab@unf.edu) The DRC’s Clockwork exam portal has been temporarily suspended for exam scheduling.

 

Deaf/Hard of Hearing Students:

Professors are encouraged to make their recorded lectures or audio recordings accessible by either auto-captioning through Canvas Studios, prerecording lectures to be captions by CIRT or requesting interpreters for real-time (virtual) class meetings. For assistance with this, please contact Debra Lenahen (dlenahen@unf.edu) or Carly Hudson (c.hudson@unf.edu) directly. 

 

Semester Accommodations Renewal:

Students will continue to request accommodations through Clockwork via MyWings -> Student Tools -> Clockwork. 

 

How to complete registration with the DRC:

At this time, there will not be in-person DRC registration appointments. As an alternative, our department will be conducting remote registrations. Please continue to submit your disability documentation via Clockwork (MyWings -> Student Tools -> Clockwork -> Online Intake). Guidelines for documentation and forms are on the Disability Resource Center website. Once a student has submitted their documentation and completed their Online Intake, they will receive an email inviting them to make a virtual registration appointment. India Hamilton will be the point of contact for all registration questions and can be reached at india.hamilton@unf.edu.

 

Assistive Technology:

Please contact andrew.sullivan@unf.edu if you require course texts in an alternate format or require Assistive Technology resources. Information on how to utilize common assistive software is available upon request.
