UPIKE is committed to providing equal educational opportunities and full participation for individuals with disabilities. The Disability Resource Center (DRC) supports UPIKE’s commitment by coordinating accommodations so that every student with disabilities has equal access to actively participate in all facets of the educational experience at UPIKE. DRC staff serve as liaisons for students with faculty, staff and/or administration; make referrals for off-campus services; and strive to empower students to be self-sufficient advocates for their accommodation needs.
Each person has a different set of needs. As a student with a disability, your accommodations will be determined on an individual basis, utilizing your self-report in the initial interview and disability-related documentation received from your healthcare provider.
Accommodations and services available may include:
Initially, you’ll meet with a disability resource counselor to identify your disability-related barriers (past, present and/or anticipated) and to engage in dialogue about your expectations and/or concerns as you prepare to start your educational journey at UPIKE.
Preferably, documentation should be in letter form on professional letterhead and address the following:
Submit all disability documentation directly to the Disability Resource Center. Received documentation is confidential. This information is released and/or discussed only on a need-to-know basis. It is also subject to FERPA guidelines. Outside these guidelines, no information is released and/or discussed without consent from the individual. Note: Disability-related information submitted to other offices on campus (e.g. Admissions, Housing, Financial Aid) may not be automatically forwarded to the Disability Resource Center. This could delay the processing of accommodations.
