Final exams need to be scheduled as early as
possible, and there will be a set deadline each semester that is usually a
month in advance.
All exams taken in the DRC need to be at the same date
and time as the class is taking them, unless otherwise specified by your
professor. Your professor can email, call, come in person or note on the exam

Accommodations from the DRC
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.
The Disability Resource Center (DRC) at UNF offers a wide variety of legally
mandated services to students with documented disabilities. After reviewing
your documentation, a member of the DRC Team meet with the student to assist in
determining appropriate academic services and accommodations based on the
documentation and recommendations from the licensed professional. Upon
completion of this registration process, the student will follow the procedures
to receive the academic accommodations.
Faculty will be informed of the student’s accommodations.
Accommodations letters will be created and will be available to the DRC student
and faculty. Registered students will utilize the Clockwork portal >
Self-Registration to request their accommodations letters for each new course
in which they are registered during a semester.
TYPES OF ACCOMMODATIONS
Services and accommodations are provided to DRC-registered students who have
completed the registration process. Modifications of policies, practices or
courses are not required if they would fundamentally alter the nature of the
course or academic program. Similarly, any services that would result in an
undue financial or administrative burden may not be provided. Below are
examples of but not limited to the types of accommodations or services that are
provided by the DRC:
Assistive listening devices
Extended test times
Use of calculators
Temporary accommodations for those students who
provide documentation supporting services but for a limited time. (See
Temporary Physical Impairments below )
Once the student receives academic accommodations for which he is eligible,
a letter listing such accommodations is created in the Clockwork System. The
letters are emailed to the student’s professors. Each semester, the student
will be able to forward the accommodation letters to his professors through the
Clockwork portal. Hard copy letters are
also available for student and faculty.
can be provided to students with temporary physical impairments. Students will be required to provide medical
documentation of the temporary impairments (letter from physician or medical
documents showing the nature and extent of the injury); the student will meet
with a DRC staff member to discuss what academic accommodations the student
would need. For students with hand or
arm injuries, the DRC can contact the student’s professors to discuss obtaining
a note taker and to arrange any testing accommodations the student may need.

SERVICE and SUPPORT ANIMALS
established and defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), service
animals shall not be excluded from UNF facilities or activities.
(Exceptions may exist in some sterile environments, areas requiring protective
equipment or clothing, or as mandated by health codes.)
animals are defined as: animals that are individually trained to do work or
perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Such animals
might guide individuals with impaired vision, alert individuals who are hearing
impaired to intruders or sounds, pull a wheelchair, or fetch items used in
daily living (Ref. ADA Title III, 28 CFR Sec 36.104).
animals, usually referred to as Emotional Support animals, normally provide passive support to people with
disabilities. ESAs can be a therapy tool or an integral part of a treatment
process. They do not assist individuals with a disability to perform the
activities of daily living. Therapy animals are not covered by laws protecting
and giving rights to service animals. Approval of the presence of a therapy animal
falls within the authority of the university regarding accommodations to a
of the student’s disability and the need to have an emotional support animal
must be provided to the Disability Resource Center. Upon approval to have the
animal on campus, Housing & Residence Life will be notified of the animal’s
presence in the residence halls.
who request a service or emotional support animals must comply with state and
local requirements regarding registration and licensing of the animal as well
as having current veterinary health certificates.

attendance policies if required to accommodate a student’s disability. In
making this determination, two questions must be answered:
Does the student

a review of documentation from the student’s health care provider.
Is attendance and
participation an essential element of the class? More specifically,
would modification of attendance policies result in a fundamental
alteration of an essential element of the program? The DRC will
collaborate with the faculty member to make this determination.

contribute to the final grade and/or written assignments. Students are also
advised that they are responsible to keep up with reading, obtain class notes

the nation, hundreds of students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are
applying and enrolling in institutions of higher education. At the University
of North Florida (UNF), we are proud to serve and support UNF students with ASD
on campus. To ensure UNF students with ASD experience successful collegiate benchmarks,
THRIVE was created and developed by dedicated staff within the disability
resource center (DRC) and the College of Education and Human Services (COEHS).
Unique to UNF and the DRC, THRIVE focuses on three primary areas of need
including (a) social skills, (b) independent and responsible living skills, and
(c) career development skills. These core components comprise the fundamental
premises of THRIVE and consist of a series of steps to achieve competency in
each of the three areas. Using students' strengths and skills, THRIVE staff
will assist and support student-directed goals in each area identified by the
student. THRIVE was first developed in 2012, under the direct guidance of the
former DRC director, along with three UNF students. THRIVE has continued to
grow and remain sustainable with invested partnerships across campus, allowing

students across all facets of UNF from freshmen to graduate students. This is
to ensure that THRIVE students at UNF have the greatest opportunities for
success within the collegiate environment with generalizable skills to life
beyond UNF. THRIVE believes that these basic supplemental services should be
provided to students at no additional cost, therefore, involvement in THRIVE is
free for eligible participants.

Guests are provided the opportunity to hear firsthand what it is like to hire

information that will help prepare students for the work force and for pursuing
competitive employment upon graduating from UNF.

“no otherwise qualified disabled individual shall, by reason of such
disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be
subjected to discrimination” in programs or activities sponsored by a public
entity. Section 504 states, “No other wise qualified individual with a

or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving
federal financial assistance...”
