Getting Started with DRC

Students receiving supported education services from the Disability Resource Center are provided with the opportunity to experience a safe beginning or re-entry to college through attendance in specially designed courses on college orientation and study skills (COUN 100), disability management (DSKL 821). Also see Developmental Skills courses.

Skyline College offers services to students with learning disabilities, psychological disabilities, and long or short term physical disabilities. Services include but are not limited to: ASL interpreting, registration assistance, extended time on placement tests, lockers, adaptive physical education classes, Assistive Technololgy classes, note-taking, equipment loans, textbooks and tests/exams in alternate format, and referral services.

Academic Adjustments for Students with Disabilities

Federal and state legislation require community colleges to establish programmatic as well as physical access to their academic offerings. Students with verified disabilities have the right to receive reasonable academic adjustments in order to create an educational environment where they have equal access to instruction. The San Mateo County Community College District is responsible for making modifications to academic requirements and practices as necessary, without any fundamental alteration of academic standards, courses, educational programs or degrees, to ensure that it does not discriminate against qualified students with disabilities. Skyline College has developed procedures for responding to accommodation requests involving academic adjustments in a timely manner. This procedure shall provide for an individualized review of each request. The procedure shall also permit the Section 504 Coordinator, or other designated district official with knowledge of accommodation requirements, to make an interim decision pending a final resolution.
