DRC Accommodations During Fall 2020 Term

 

If you need assistance with accommodation concerns, please email drc@unf.edu. The DRC encourages the use of video conferencing for meetings with our staff. In-person meetings with DRC staff will be by appointment only. Individual staff members are available at their university email address during this time. DRC staff contacts are listed on the DRC web site. We ask that students continue to monitor alerts and the coronavirus website for updates, resources and FAQs.

 

General Appointments: 

All appointments with the DRC (other then exam scheduling) should be made by emailing the main DRC email account or a specific DRC staff member (see 'Meet the Staff' page). All classes, regardless of delivery mode, will go fully remote following the Thanksgiving holiday for the remainder of the Fall term. All general appointments with DRC staff during the remote time period will take place virtually.

 

The University recognizes that there are some individuals who are at higher risk from complications arising from coronavirus. Students can self-identify as high-risk and/or request modifications or accommodations by submitting a COVID19: High Risk - Request for ReasonableModification or Accommodation Form.

 

Testing:   

In general, only on-campus exams will be administered at the DRC. Online exams should be taken at another location and coordinated directly with your instructor to receive accommodations unless special arrangement has been made with the DRC. Please do not make testing appointments for online exams through Clockwork. Please email Emily Peterson at drcexams@unf.edu with any questions you have or special considerations needed. Testing rooms will only be available for students who have an appointment to take an exam and nothing else (i.e. studying). For sanitary reasons, students will be responsible to bring all supplies needed for exams (pencils, calculators, etc.). The DRC will not have these available.

 

Students will need to make an appointment to take an exam in the DRC at least 5 business days in advance through Clockwork in myWings. If this deadline is missed, students can email the DRC Exams email account to schedule a late exam appointment. We will no longer be using paper late sign-up forms; hence students should not come to the DRC to schedule any exam appointments.

 

If you are experiencing symptoms of illness and are scheduled to take an exam at the DRC please contact your Instructor for permission to reschedule to take your exam at a different time and have your instructor confirm this with DRC’s Testing Coordinator.

 

UNF will be in remote status after Thanksgiving break. During this time, the DRC will not proctor any exams or final exams in the DRC testing rooms. If a Professor is unable to provide exam accommodations for a DRC registered student in a remote course using Zoom please reach out to Emily Peterson at the DRC Exams email account for assistance. Faculty who need assistance with extending time on exams in Canvas should contact (cirtlab@unf.edu). DRC Student’s with exam accommodations questions may contact DRC Exams during this time.

 

Deaf/Hard of Hearing Students:

Professors are encouraged to make their recorded lectures or audio recordings accessible by either auto-captioning through Canvas Studio, prerecording lectures to be captioned by CIRT or requesting interpreters for real-time (virtual) class meetings. For assistance with this, please contact 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.
