Connect with the DRC
The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is the office which supports the community of Eastern Michigan University to provide equal access to students with disability accommodations. We are
promoters of inclusive environments to the campus community, that include equal access for academic and extracurricular activities. The DRC is used by students, faculty, and staff of the university. We educate, advocate, and advise on all matters which involve accessibility for students to equal access of the academic, social, and physical campus.
- All students seeking services from the DRC must complete the DRC Initial Questionnaire.
- Once the student has completed the Initial Questionnaire, the student will need to contact the DRC to schedule a consultation with a case manager to review reasonable accommodations.
- Students must provide supporting documentation to their case manager. Documentation can be in the form of an IEP, 504 Plan, or medical letter.
- On the day of appointment, bring any supporting documentation to the appointment.
The student and case manager will discuss reasonable accommodations based on documentation and the student's experiences.
- Upon completion of the appointment, a letter of accommodation will created. The student's LOA will be emailed and ready for the student to present to their instructor(s).
Students must provide the DRC with medical documentation before receiving any sort of accommodation. The information will be kept confidential to the fullest extent of the law. Faculty does not receive any of this confidential information. The student can fax or email the documentation before their appointment OR bring it with them to their appointment.
All documentation should include:
The name, credentials, phone number, and signature of the evaluator.
A specific diagnosis.
A description of the functional impact of the disability in a higher education setting.
Documentation can be in the form of:
Letters on letterhead from medical doctors, psychiatrist, therapist, or psychologist.
