The Disability Resource Center (DRC) provides instructional support services for enrolled Mendocino College students who have a verifiable disability. The program serves the educational needs of students with disabilities recognized under Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. DRC encourages student autonomy, independence and responsibility. The program promotes equal educational opportunity and access. We also serve as an advocate of student rights.
DRC staff will provide information and classroom materials in the format that accommodates the individual student's need(s). This may include Braille textbooks, large-print text, screen enlargement and other peripherals to allow students to reach their educational goals. Other accommodations to students may include academic and vocational counseling, early registration assistance, digital recorders, note taker paper, ASL interpreters for the Deaf & Hard of Hearing, audio books, extra time for tests, etc. Academic accommodations are determined based on functional limitations associated with a student's disability. These accommodations are provided in an effort to create a "level playing field" for students.
- DRC services at Mendocino College are for registered students with a verifiable disability that creates an educational limitation. The disability may be permanent or temporary.
