Disability Resource Center (DRC)

Disability Resource Center

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) provides services for students with physical, learning and other types of disabilities.

The DRC is located in AC-115. Services will be based on the level of disability and the academic needs of each student. Students may be interested in:

  • improving job skills
  • getting a vocational certificate
  • pursuing personal enrichment
  • planning to transfer to a four-year college.

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandate that students with learning, physical or other types of disabilities receive services to allow an equal experience in education. The Disability Resource Center is the central area for these free services.
