Weekly Appointments with DRC Specialists

In addition to assisting students with accommodations and other auxiliary aids and services, DRC Specialists offer weekly appointments on a first-come-first-serve basis.  Students who wish to work with a DRC Specialist on a regular basis may request appointments at any point during the semester and are required to commit to weekly appointments at the same time each week. Students are encouraged to sign up early for their weekly time slot.  These appointments are on a first come/first serve basis.

Support is offered in the following areas:

  •  Self advocacy, time management and organization, goal setting, course selection and registration assistance, compensatory skills and study strategies, such as note-taking, active reading, and test taking techniques
  • In addition, DRC Specialists are prepared to respond to students' questions or concerns about how their disability may impact them in courses, chosen careers, or in other settings.  When appropriate, staff will refer students to campus and community resources

At the start of each semester, students are encouraged to set goals and objectives for the academic term, and look ahead to plan for career-related needs. Students should come to weekly sessions prepared to:

  • Discuss specific concerns, bring relevant textbooks, notebooks, syllabi, and other materials
  • Follow through on the objectives they set during each meeting

Students who miss two appointments without sufficient cause will be dropped from the weekly caseload. Students may request to be reinstated under the following conditions:

  • Reinstatement of weekly support is dependent upon available space and the student's commitment
  • Students will be allowed one reinstatement each semester
  • If students should have an unexcused absence after their reinstatement, they will lose the privilege of weekly appointments for the semester. Students are always welcome to schedule one time appointments as needed
  • Students are expected to be on time for each session. Those who are late more then ten minutes will forfeit that day's appointment

*Even if a student is dropped from weekly appointments, they have the right to receive appropriate accommodations when supported by disability-related documentation and requested in a timely fashion.
