Disability and Accommodations

Students walking with their bikes in front of fall foliage
Graduate Studies recently partnered with the Division of Student Affairs, the UC Davis School of Law and the Student Disability Center (SDC) to launch a one-year pilot program that will allow graduate students to work with an on-site disability specialist during the 2019-2020 academic year.

Learn more about the program and how you can arrange to meet with a disability specialist at Mrak Hall by reading the announcement.

 

UC Davis Student Disability Center

Graduate students requiring accommodation are encouraged to work with the Student Disability Center (SDC). The SDC is staffed by team of professionals who have expertise in the education of students with disabilities. 

Visit the Student Disability Center Website

Student Disability Center Specialists approve services and coordinate accommodations to ensure equal access to the University’s educational programs. While accommodation information is shared on a “need to know” basis in order to facilitate services, disability information kept confidential and does not appear on transcripts or diplomas.
How Accommodations Are Determined

Through an interactive process, the student and SDC Specialist discuss the student’s current documented functional limitations and request for services within the context of courses requirements. Occasionally, instructors are consulted to ensure that proposed accommodations do not represent a fundamental alteration to a course or program. Once reasonable and appropriate accommodations are identified and approved by the SDC Specialist, an official Letter of Accommodation is written on behalf of the student.
